PURPLE Burst Basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Woodsbass, Jan 24, 2012.


  1. Hey guys, wondering if anyone has a purple burst bass. I would love to see some!

    I'm planning on doing a bass refin and I want to do purple burst, any suggestions, or better yet, photos of someone doing a purple burst refin? (Or any burst, really).

    Thanks!

    Don't have one, but Carvin can do it if you order trans purple and add the black edges. None of the pics they have it on are basses, but here's some guitars to whet your whistle...

    I would do just about anything for that bass.

    bringing this thread back... anyone? also interested in seeing some interesting purplebursts
     
  5. Depending on how dark the purple is, a burst may either be unnecessary ( for cost and effort, at least ) and unnoticed unless you or someone else is looking for / at it.

    That said, there's a really nice deep purple on the Bass Central Alembic Essence page. That's a manly purple, there.

    I'm thinking about doing a purple bust for one of my refin projects... It'll probably be a couple of years out though.

    I got one of my mustangs refin'd in a candy purple burst. This was what it looked like when it was finally completed:

    Thanks,
    I kind of have a thing for purple burst guitars/basses... For example, here are some other pieces of my collection:

    IMAG0029.

    IMAG0419.

    IMAG0302.

    And this thing of beauty is available in the classifieds if anyone happens to be interested:

    I have quite a few purple basses but all are solid colors except the mustang (for now!)
