    Looking for ideas on configuration again, and I really like the idea of a purple body but I've only seen one!

    So if you've got a purple bass, post your regal instrument here!
     
  2. This WAS my purple bass until after the Extreme Makeover - Bass Edition. You can find the thread in this Basses Forum.

    Well, its not a bass, yet... Just a finished warmoth body, waiting for some lucky SOB to buy it...

    I've come very close...

    These aren't mine - they used to belong to a guy I belong to another forum with.

    Does Wine count as purple? Here's my US Curbow Petite with a wineburst finish. The back is purpleheart and has a darker purple finish, but I don't know if I have any pics of the back, or not.

    It's currently being refinished, though, so it isn't really "winebursted" :eyebrow: anymore.

    Look, again, Jr. The edge of the bass is, indeed, purple. The middle is redish.

    :bassist:

    At least it isn't GREEN.

    cgworkman: That's certainly one swanky SR5! Take a picture of it with a flash -- if that's the finish I think it is, it'll look awesome.

    Sorry I can't. That bass used to belong to a guy that is a member of another forum I'm in. I believe he's sold that bass for another...

    I'd post a pic of my Purple Dean, but I don't have it in my possession yet (still owe some on it :))

    Here's a pic of one just like it from another site. Like said by others, purple just doesn't photograph well, especially if it's translucent.
