NPD- new paint day!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by dukey donkey, Oct 24, 2018.

  1. Well I got this Jackson Kelly bass last spring...it was in rough shape
    Had to replace the jazz pick up and rewire the whole shebang... Her paint was missing in a few spots from years of abuse I'm sure... so the natural thing to do is to get a new paint job. I've always wanted a seafoam with black hardware, but since I work at a sign shop, and our resident painter was doing the work for free...I had to pick an available color... the color is actually the same teal that we paint the Swirl World signs you find in a lot of Racetrac or Raceway gas stations....but I got a bonus... He threw in a pearl reflective coat that we use on street level signs... Yay! I'm impressed...it looks way better in person... Had to play with color saturation and hue to get closer to the actual color... IMG_20181024_222151. IMG_20181024_221924. and for posterity, here's the before pic... Screenshot_20180222-162230.

    oh dang that's so cool!

    Reminds me (kinda) of Iron Pewter models of Ibanez SR300!
  5. That looks sharp! Really dig the color combination. Way better than before!
    But, and I‘m sure I‘m not the only one wondering: What‘s that strap? :D

    I’ve thought about getting my old Precision* re-painted in a new color so many times...

    *not "valuable old", just a circa 2000 MIM

    Massive improvement. Good call.
  16. Love that color. Those Perry straps are great too. I got one at GC the other day. $22 bucks for a suede strap is a great deal!

    Nice bass!

    Everything about the looks of that bass is great. You got the perfect color.
