    Now I know, this is not everyone's cup of tea, but I have always wanted a heavy gold flake custom bass. Well, thanks to Sean at CinCityCustoms I now have a beauty! I parted together a Jazz bass several years ago. Always one of my favorites to play, but I was never happy with the color.

    So tell me what you think!

    The gold for sure. That's sharp.


    But you are teasing us with that rinky dink full bass shot. How about a close up of the body in the sun?

    There's the money!

    Yeah that looks freaking great. I bet it kills under stage lights.

    Is that a new neck or did you change the inlays as well?

    Simply changed the inlay decals. I love that neck, I won't part with that.

    Well how about that! I've been wanting to get a bass flaked for a long time now, and had been considering Marty Bell, but CinCity is near a lot of places I play in Cinci. Very, very good to know!

    I like 'em both... I am mad about pretty much any big metalflake, but that's a very nice burst

    Very nice! I have always appreciated metal flake, but have never had a guitar with it

    Love the gold! I'm not a matching-headstock guy, but go big or go home!

    I like gold. I love Vegas. I don't like that gold flake. A lovely carrotish hue would probably be best.
