    holy cow that is absolutely gorgeous! That's almost exactly the same as the finish on my emerald green flamed maple spector! I love it!

    the Geddy neck should look awesome on that green body ...
    it's gonna be a knockout !!

    i wonder how black hardware would look on the green body ? { to match the black inlays on the neck ...}

    I thought about it... but I already had the Hipshot tuners in chrome. Maybe later I'll trade out...

  20. I don't know for sure, but I think gold hardware would look pretty sweet on that bass. I am not usually a fan of gold hardware, but it always seems to look good with those transparent green finishes.

    It will still be a sweet looking bass with chrome too!

    Congrats, Nino does some nice work.
