Show your amber basses!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Bubba Love, Feb 12, 2006.


  1. I'm contemplating various colour options for a new jazz, and I'd really like to see some of your hot amber basses. Preferably Fender type (inc Sads, etc) P and Js, but anything else is welcome too!

    Hmm...Is my bass considered amber or natural finish?

    awwwww.... are you sure? I've heard people call it both before. Or maybe they called it blonde... I don't remember now...

    The 75's are just clear finish on an ash body, IIRC. That's a natural finish.
    You can have a transparent amber finish, where you still see the wood grain...but it is different from a natural finish.

    Blonde is different from both of them ;)

    Ah, I see. I just stick with calling mine natural then. Thanks for the analysis. :)

    It's definately not a Fender but it is kinda pretty.

    Love this bass and was willing to take any color but wanted an Amber one which was hard to find. It came up on Evil Bay about 3 months ago and I grabbed it. :hyper: :hyper:
     
  19. Fender :D

    It's a 2005 MIA Deluxe Jazz with the new SMC pickups and 18v preamp. I can get a huge range of sounds out of it.
