What say you ? I think with a pick up and bridge cover it has alot of potential.
No, it is not cool. Maybe for a chick bassist...but no, it is not cool.
I like the paisley basses better...
I changed my mind. You should get one.
Haha, that bass is... pure metal!
It's a very good bass, especially for the money. I've had one for a couple of years. Forget the covers, the best upgrade is to replace the bridge with a Fender Deluxe (drop in replacement, fits the three screw holes exactly). It also allows stringing through the body as well as the rear of the bridge and more accurate intonation.
The pickup has a great, punchy edge to it and plenty of bottom. The neck is essentially a fast B neck and the body is contoured and very lightweight. Workmanship is excellent, as is the case with most CIJ Fenders.
Two thumbs way up.
Honestly, I love them
Yours was butterscotch tho...right
Yeah those are cool but this my all time favorite paisley [/IMG] This finish just screams for me.
I feel secure enough in my Metal side that I can enjoy the trippy vintage thing every now and again.
Not really a paisley... That's a fractal design (or looks to be one)...
Very cool though!!!!
I like the pink paisley better, but I have a feeling, with a new bridge and a nice pickup (I think SD does a "51 P" replacement), that could be a smokin bass.
To any and all variations in this thread, I say "no, it's not cool."
Unless it's so uncool that it's cool.
Then it's _really_ cool.
I have a feeling that could be the case with this finish.
Our other bass player (mostly she's the drummer, and occasionally a backing vocalist) has a Pink Paisley.
It plays pretty well. I don't really care for the tone the pup puts out sometimes. I don't know if it's the pup or the bridge or strings, but the thing gets a kind of "whah" occasionaly. But I will say that the tone knob goes from nothing but bass to some very pinging highs, quite a broad range of sounds.
It does play well, it's pretty light, and there's something catchy about the finish. I'd own one for the right price... well, probably the flower blue over the PP, but still.
man i'd be all over a bass that had that green paisley-like finish!
MM, if you want to rock the blue flower, go for it--make it cool
Maybe if it had a real P pickup on there, it would be more appealing.
Well, maybe if the bridge cover is one of those oversized jazz ones, and if you add a nice big pickguard... A really BIG pickguard...
Actually, I think a paisley-burst that fades to black at the edges might be a sweet look for metal.
I kind of agree, while it looks kind of cool, the pickup looks as if it's very susceptible to hum. I've also read that the "original" P pickup tends to sound pretty weak.
Paisley in some colors...could be cool
And I'm confident in my sexy-ality...just not a fan of pink or flowers.
