    What are they called? I like the first one. The second looks like "Shoreline Gold" to me. Or very similar....

    They’re both called “not shell pink, therefore disappointing.”

    The Sherwood Green Metallic is sweet. My Stu Hamm Urge I bass is the same color and it looks great to me.
    EDIT: But I'm wrong. It's actually Ocean Turquoise.

    Actually, I was mistaken. The one on the left (or top) is Ocean Turquoise and the one on the right (or bottom) is Champagne.

    N.B., The images appear side-by-side in a narrow browser window and on top of each other in a wider one.

  9. 'Ocean Turquoise' (top) and 'Champagne' (bottom) apparently... I kinda like them.

    Ocean T needs a white pearloid PG to match the inlays....

    the Champagne could use a black pearloid PG to (sort of) match the inlays

    or

    the OT could use tort inlays......

    Edit....I'm adding IMHO to this post... and also.... I like both colours!!

    Tort inlays are something I've never seen. Intriguing idea!

    I'm just waiting for them to cut out the middlemen and switch back to a made to order model completely

    Then I'll get my bass vi in burgundy mist with a matching headstock. It's gonna be awesome:woot:

    If you play guitar I saw shell pink on the jazzmaster which is pretty sweet.

    I must be weird. I care 90% how a bass sounds, 10% how it plays, 0% how it looks. Or at most some small fraction that rounds down to zero.

    Agreed that sound and feel are top priority. That said, having a nice looking bass makes me want to pick it up and play even more.

    It may just be icing on the cake, but it's never a bad thing...
