  1. I just bought a mint PG off Ebay, and I'm bored at work (slow friday at the library) so I thought it would be cool to see everybody's mint green basses/parts. Let's see 'em!

    I apologize for bringing a guitar to a bass party, but thought you might like to see the mint guard I put on my Strat. It came with a single-ply white p/g, but I like the mint better:

  4. Mint on white always makes me think of ice cream.

  9. Now this here geetar,my friends,is what you call a "true" mint 'guard..... It's really a "true" shade of green!!








    BRAVO!!!!!
     

  10. Mr.K,is that "discoloration" (by the f/arm contour) really on that P-Bass you show (at the bottom of your post)??? It does seem to show up in ALL your pics. Not raggin' on your bass,for sure. I be lovin' some mojo!!!

    the Jag guards are kinda weird. they're in-between mint and parchment, but lean a little more towards mint.
     
  15. both mint and parchment are tough to capture on camera.

    Can't wait for my mint to come in the mail so that I can't do it justice on this very thread.

  17. Winner. The mint really doesn't show in the pic, but the Telebass pickguard, control plate, and two saddle bridge just BEG for mint.

    Actually, this is the only bass that looks completely right with both sunburst and mint. Might have something to do with how much of the bass is covered in pickguard. That of course is only my own opinion.

    Can't tell the guard is mint from this photo, but it's mint all right. I'll post better pics as soon as she arrives next week!
