I just wanted to re-do this. I wish that I had more time to redo the photos or even spend more time playing this bass but I have to work tonight. My photos don't even do it justice. The Ceruse finish is much more muted than my pix bring out. In real life it looks like a lovingly carved piece of ebony. All I can do is kinda slobber on it. I can't believe the tones that this thing is harboring. And to look at it just reminds me of something VERY SEXY. Along the lines of a beautiful raven haired woman or an Italian sports car.
