    The Show Your Shell Pink Basses thread is so old it's mostly Photobucket deadlinks, and checking on

    TalkBass Clubs & Special Interest Groups INDEX |

    showed nothing, so....

    I've not quite got something of my own to show here yet, but this limited edition Pro Jazz took quite a lot of resisting last month:

    Should've never let this one go.
    A board member bought it, but I never see any posts about it or I'd definitely buy it back.
    So much nicer than Fender's Shell Pink.

    Referred to as an "abomination" in another thread, I'm still quite a fan of my shell pink Mustang PJ:

    I built this Warmoth right before the Pinks had a resurgence and became a very popular color (at least for a while).
    Loaded with DiMarzio PAF Model J's. It plays and sound great. One of my desert island basses for sure.
    The PG is made from '60's Ludwig drum laminate - Pink Champagne Gold Sparkle.

    Is that a rotary switch or blend knob?

    It is: Other.

    Rather an inelegant but probably temporary solution: on the plate are V V, and out in the woods is T. It's an EMG kit and I wanted to get up and running with minimal effort, so used their solderless connectors.

    I love the pickups, but do eventually want bells & whistles like a blend knob, or a Tonestyler, maybe a concentric setup, something snazzy heh.

    I’m horrible at taking pictures (borrowed one from sweetwater because there the best I can find) of my basses but I picked up one of these last month.

  13. As someone who doesn’t own any pink guitars, can you please tell me how the Fender pink ages? Does it change color as it gets older? Darker? Lighter? For instance the Fender Olympic White changes (with nitro and poly finishes) to a banana yellow colour the older it gets? What about the pink?

    Man, I like shell pink, but I really like this one.
  15. Thanks man. Usually a tort guy but I think with shell pink the right answer is mint. YMMV;)
