    I like the natural ones better..... Everyone I've seen has a great looking top; better it seems than the red ones..
     
  2. Red is my fav colour..so thats what i voted for. However i think the natural looks awsome too.

    Either way you cant go wrong.

    The Magenta looks wicked, although I may just be saying that since I'm all natural'ed out (last bass - natural US Jazz black pguard, bass I'm waiting for - natural reissue black pguard) :rolleyes:

    I'd suggest Natural, I've seen both of the GT's colors at some of the local shops and the natural always looks GREAT. Not to say anything negative about Conklin cause I LOVE their stuff, but IMO the red color always looked kinda plasticy or candy-ish which just ain't my style.
     
  6. +1. I have the natural one.

    All the red ones I've seen in pictures looked really odd. I think the staining is not done very well, it doesn't bring out the flame enough under red.

  8. I like my Magenta GT5.
    Not that the natural ones aren't beautiful.....

    Hmmmm.. seeing that those two colors are the only ones available will make it a little hard to get one with "neither" finish..

    :meh:

    Just for the record, that stain color is technically called "wine", haha... ;)

    Anyway, I prefer the Magenta/wine stain over the natural. I think it suits the instrument's design better.
     
  13. my bad for the typo. i realized that i put magneta, instead of magenta. oops.

    anyway, i already ordered the bass, and i went with the wine color. thanks for the help.

    Hmmm I wonder if that color would interfere with the pickups? :D :D

    i was hinting that he should not get a standard GT, he should get a Bill dickens sig.
     
  18. i dont want a BD7. too much money. couldnt find one used, so i went with the GT7.
