    Hey guys, it's my birthday tomorrow ! I have save enough money to buy my Japanese jazz bass and those instructional books and dvds that you guys recommended to me. However, i got one more dilemma... I could not decide which colour to buy. The Black, Lake placid blue and Candy apple red all look very nice.

    So, i was wondering if you guys can post pics of your basses ( only those 3 colours) and show it to me.... help me to make the decision.

    I think it all depends on the PG

    I agree. But I do like candy apple red with a black pg and matching headstock.
     
  8. This is my Jazz 5. I'm not sure if the colour is considered lake placid blue.

    Really love black on black, but to me it really depends on the fingerboard.

    Very pretty jazz, AJ.
     
  12. Black on black looks really badass on a maple neck. I'd either get that or a candy apple red. Red basses are cool.
