Hey bass dudes, I really like the sound and feel of my Peavey Foundation - especially with a push-pull pot that puts in the pickups in a fat-tone series mode - but I don't really dig the look of it too much. It's a very plain-looking bass, and looks kind of like a starter bass. If it was natural wood, that would be different...but the solid red paint just isn't doing it for me. It looks pretty similar to this (except my knobs are black): So I'm wondering if y'all have any ideas for jazzing up the look of a bass like this. I'm going to start by putting some Bubinga or Abalone knobs on it... but beyond that, I don't have any ideas that wouldn't involve stripping / and or painting the bass. I dig the look of beat-up old basses, but I'm not into the idea of intentionally relic-ing mine...that would feel kind of cheap. Does anyone know how the wood looks under the paint of one of these? I love the look of natural wood on a bass... what do you think I'd reveal if I asked a luthier to strip the paint and stain the wood underneath? Thanks guys! I appreciate any suggestions!
