    I am ordering a blue burst bass right now...I really like the modulus dark purple into cobalt blue color, but thought I would get a sampling of what is out there...looking for transparent finishes!

    Thanks!
     
  2. Not a burst, but transparent blue over quilted maple.

    Yep. That is my friend Adam Granatella's bass, and that isn't the real color, as the sun is making that look a lot bluer. The color is more of a green/blue, like Munji's new Zon bass.

    No, I am gettng Bird's Eye Maple, off the same board that my 3-tone burst Bird's eye maple was made from (call them a matching pair, one from the ice planet, one from the fire planet :D)

    What do you think of the Caribbean blue Zon has ? Is it alot lighter ? Like an Ocean blue kind of thing ? BTW congrats on your CD release. It looks like it went very well.

    I am very happy for you that you will be getting a great looking bass. What king of neck and finger board are you doing. The only thing about those basses i dont like is the black back i like the whole thing colored. would translucent look good on the back. Well best of luck would love to see some pics when your done. rock on

    Oh well, it ain't a 'burst, but that doesn't seem to have stopped anyone else. Here.

    Neck is an all-wenge lined fretless. Yeah I know...would've looked better with nice birdseye maple, but I had the neck already, and no blue bass, so...

    I'll set it up like a Jaco bass - chrome Control Plate, bridge and Hipshot Ultralights, no pickguard and nickel roundwounds. Pups will be no-name 70s pups I removed from my '75 Jazz while restoring it. They sounded good, but I wanted CS60s in that bass.

    Most importanly, I think that alder body+all wenge neck should give me nice mwah and growl.
