    So I've never seen a purple/violet color fender bass before. Are there any out there? I would be very interested in one :)
  2. I've seen a MIM Jazz in a very deep blue that some might call purple- might've seen some kind of Jazz in a genuine purple, not sure... are you looking to get one? I think you can post in *wanted- basses* w/o being a supporting member.
  3. What kind of finish were you after? as in one like there candy red or a matte like purple or something else?

    I've seen older (90's era) Squier P's, J's, as well as Strats in fugly purple, but no MIM's or MIA's. That doesn't mean they don't exist, and there is always the option of refinishing one.
  5. When we refinish my Fender J... there will be pics... its Royal Crown Purple

    Lots of people consider Burgundy Mist Metallic to be a shade of purple -


    And then there was purple metallic (or purple chrome...can't remember) -

    They're just not manly enough to admit it's pink. ;)

    I remember running across a "Purple Metallic" that a few people had on here if I remember correctly. Looked like the Jazz that Dark Horse posted (That wasn't the one I remembered though). I don't see them often though...

    Since the title didn't specify bass in particular, here's a purple Fender.

    I've got an MIA Fretless P in the "Metallic Purple", don't remember what the actual name for the finish is.

    Sort of. Leo's last creation even though it says G&L L5000 on the headstock not Fender.

    The color is Sparkle Purple.

  12. I am fairly sure it was simply purple metallic. Or metallic purple.
    One of those.
    I would love to have one, a P-bass with a metallic purple finish, black PG, maple board, and gold hardware.

    The Fender Stu Hamm Urge II in Bright Sapphire Metallic (now discontinued) was a beautiful purple color. I owned one for about a year, and after shimming the rubber-band neck several times & dealing with faulty electronics, I sold it. Great color though...

    When I last tried to sell my P everyone told me it's not truly purple, just deep blue. It's still purple in my book, but I haven't tried as hard to sell it lately . . .

  18. i think somthing more like the j-mascis jazzmaster on a jazz bass would look uber sexy. now please dont photoshop that paintjob onto a jazz bass. ive already had to watch porn today to calm me down

    If "purple" is your main concern, then this is the bass you really want -
