    I've just ordered this bass from EB and wanted everyones opinion on this finish combo. Keep in mind, mine will have 5 strings and double humbuckers in black. I'm not sure on either the White or White Pearl PG. any thoughts?

    I voted pearl, but tortoise also looks delicious with trans orange.

    Voted pearl, but would also suggest tort with that color combo. This should be a killer bass when you get it.
     
  5. I can taste the orange off those basses.

    I'd want a black one, so I voted other.

    But between white and pearl, I'd choose pearl.

    Pearl looks good (out of the two) but I'm with the Tort camp on this one.
     
  9. Almost any color would look great. But of your choices I'd pick pearl first.

    Soniq,

    WOW! The images on EB's website do NOT do this finish justice! Your bass is HOT! I love how the grain shows through in your pic. Thanks all for the great feedback. I am leaning toward PEARL, but keep the votes coming.

    Random,

    I really like the look of the tort, plus you have the maple neck like the 5er I just ordered. So far it's either Pearl or Tort. Any other suggestions?:)

    I like turtles.
    I vote White Pearloid. The pearloid on the pic wasn't very white, but if you had a nice bright white one it would be awesome.
