    I've been wanting to do this for awhile, and finally did it. I know it's not something most would do, but I love the way it looks!:smug:

  6. If Wu-tang used a live band, the bassist would use these.

    This should be a factory option. Nice.

    I guess I'll be hearing that a lot! :D
    Bought some white primer...gave it 2 coats of primer, about 10 minutes apart, then gave it 3 coats of fluorescent yellow, about 5-10 minutes apart. It dries to the touch in about 15 minutes, but I let it hang in my garage for about 5 hours before touching it. Assembled, but haven't screwed the screws tight yet...I'll let it sit until about mid-day tomorrow before torquing them all the way. According to the can, it's completely dry in 24 hours.
    I may be needing them at tomorrow nights gig! :bassist:
    +2 to sunglasses!! :cool:

    Thanks Bill!

    I couldn't find an exact match, so I opted for the fluorescent.
     
  16. SWEET I think MarkBass should do this to the entire lineup.

    Thanks Man!

    I think so to...would have saved me some time and paint money!!
     
  18. I dig the idea but I can't say I like the execution, if only because of the two different shades of yellow.

    BTW - I like the Orange Yellow/Fluorescent mix
