    Just for fun, post a photo or two of your open grained or wood stained bass (no painted or otherwise solid colored basses).

    In other words, lets see that grain!
    Stained is fine, so long as your bass shows the grain.
    I just want to see who else is owning sexy woody basses.

    Here's mine! (sans strap-locks)

    I hope a transparent/burst finish won't draw down the OP's ire (I, for one, don't want a pissed-off Brian Blessed showing up on my doorstep! :blackeye:), but here it goes anyway…

    I don't know if these qualify on accounta most have a lacquer finish, but I just realized that all four of my instruments are some kind of Natural finish.
