    What's the bass that you own (or have owned) with the best looking finish? Mine is probably this frankenjazz that I had Kevin Brubaker refinish. Fender Custom Shop neck, USA made All-Parts cutom order body and EMG electronics. What's yours? Post away!!! IMG_20180429_201310.

    After growing up playing someone else's cast offs, i vowed i would have a beautiful bookmatched, highly figured top with an eye popping dye job as soon as i could afford one. Not long after being able to afford such things i had a local guy top me a bass with a bookmatched quilted maple top that looked like big bubbles, then do a dark blue dye wash on it. It was a true eye burner, but it never left the house and barely left the case because i was so afraid of that first ding i wouldn’t use it.
    While i no longer own that bass and have no plans to ever own anything really fancy, i do enjoy looking at them.

    The maple w/natural oil finish on this Muck really floats my boat

    Media page. There isn't a picture of my bass that hasn't already been posted at least twice.

    Here is my Prana Customs fretless with a hand picked Macassar Ebony Top, Ash Body. I LOVE this bass. Joseph Sheldon, Luthier from Parana Custom Guitars does outstanding work.
