    I am a big fan of Gecko basses and have recently decided to overhaul my collection.

    My plan was to raise the grain on these bodies- apply a dye - and seal with some subtle flake finish .

    My understanding is was that the bodies were alder (MM 5 string) and swamp Ash (dual soapbar 6) but it looks like they are both Ash?!

    I've searched threads related to dyeburst finishes and glitter/flake but haven't seem them combined.

    What does the TB hive mind think of these bodies?

    For colors I wanted to do green burst (MM) and purple burst (6)
