    I know that there's some really nice looking amber basses out there. It's time we gave them their own little place to groove.

    Here's mine. :smug:

    Sorry about the dirty bridge. I was taking some test shots, it was kind of a spur of the moment thing. I think the picture came out okay though.

  5. That is one beautiful Lakland, Chunk-O-Funk. The figuring of the birdseye is great too.
     
  6. Bubinga/amber gloss finish. Very used. Picked up about a month ago from original owner. Body is amazing condition. Edit - as others have observed, some "ambers" can look very orange in pics. Perhaps bubinga qualifies as amber. Not sure if Zon has ever had an "orange" on the market ... http://www.zonguitars.com/zonguitars/woods.html

    I'd buy one for sure if they met the specs of pre-Gibson steinies.
