  2. Mint green? pretty sweet...
  3. Sorry, mint green against white is not working for me.
    Looks like a bad mismatch of whites.

    Not my choice either. White pearl, chrome, black pearl, etc- plenty of better choices IMHO
  5. I dig it.

    I’d personally (opinion, like a’holes) get something that either matched the body or the fret board (tort, maybe?).


    in any case, beautiful bass; just make yourself happy.

  9. I'm digging the Mint on the Classic Ray. To bad that thing has a fat neck, my only problem with Ray's

    Have you tried the new i like better than my mia P!!
  11. Only the ones I've played in GC, which should be pretty new. Coming from a J-Bass neck even the Bongo has taken some getting used to, it's comfortable though.

    Like it or hate it, DBTOYS and I were of the same thought process when I got my Limited Edition '57 Reissue Strat a couple years ago. It was white/maple with a 1-ply white guard. I put a Mint Green guard on it, too. Sorry to show a (gasp!!!) guitar in a bass thread, but it's just for the color combo...

    ok so I like the strat but the stingray just doesnt look right id go tort on white you cant beat the classy look of tort on white.
  14. I agree.

    The mint looks good on the Strat, not at all on the Stingray.

    Part of the problem for me is the three different mismatching shades of white from the body, pickguard and pickup.

    I'm not normally a fan or tort, but in this case, a tort pickguard would look amazing with the white body and tinted Birdseye Maple neck.

    And FWIW, get that damn ashtray off the bridge and put the bar on!:hyper:

    By jove, I think you've got something there! ;) With that darkish maple board on the 'Ray, I'll bet that Mica Marble WOULD look good!

    The tort comes on the standard sting ray!!:rollno:
  18. Hey...FWIW, I really like the mint green on the Ray.

    And your backyard is damn sweet.
