    The first bass posted, the Jazz, is extremely cool without being tacky. The rest are tacky though. If it's gonna be that shiny, IMO it should be chrome!

    Don't forget jools, big ones, for knobs ;)

    Seriously, if they'd do a limited run Bongo 5 HH in gold flake, I'd buy it.

    I really dug this Lull M4V and will probably end up with one just like it at some point. :)

    f*ck! the last one is cool!

    can you do the painting by yourself? is this special paint, or something completely different?

    It's 24 Karat Gold!

    Thanks, but I'm afraid you'll have to buy a G&L. This is an optional color from the factory (they also do silver, red and blue flake like this BTW).

    Here's the matching headstock:
