    Considering ordering a Alleva Coppolo LG5 or KBP5 in pink.
    I once saw a P bass in pink, vintage 60's and it looked great. I know pink has its drawbacks. But I wanted to buy a Pink bass back in 2000. Never did but it still was on my mind. I like the extreme pinks Light and dark but the in betweens look good too. I don't think there is alot of them out there but it would be nice if I can see some of them. I don't think this thread will pass page 1 but I would like to see a few just to see how they look. Flea has a nice one. Its real light pink. Fiesta Red sort of looks pink. Got any helpful pics?

    Munji has the nicest pink bass I've ever seen -- a Lakland done in the perfect shade of pink. He might post a pic of it here.

    Fair warning: It can cause major GAS. BIG TIME.

    I really want to have a custom bass made to be more like the hot pink bass that Mark has, with skull inlays like this.

    I thought you'd never ask. This is a U.S. Lakland Joe Osborn 5 with East J-Retro electronics and Lakland pickups, reputed to be designed like the Fralins I ordered. It's got the bound maple fretboard with mother-of-pearl blocks to go with the white pearloid pick guard. It plays as well as it looks. It's the only one of this color, and Pat threw away the rest of the paint.

    There we go.


    Truthfully, with the amount of GAS that single bass has induced, I'm shocked Lakland hasn't made it an available color.

    Then again, anyone can drool over that bass, it would take a different breed to actually order it.

    I would SO play that one
     
  13. I love that bass!!

    As soon as my shell pink nitro arrives from ReRanch, I'll begin spraying a double P pup Electra I've had for a while. I'm going with vintage pearloid and knobs with pearl inlays. I've spent HOURS priming and prepping the body, I can't wait to finish it.

    Munji that bass is beautiful. Not just the color but the whole package. It seems to really work together real nice. Its kind of the way i think I will have it made except it will have a rosewood neck. The pickguard really is outstanding with that color.
    Mouse that coral is sweet.
    banezcollector that is a nice shade of light pink.
    thisSNsucks I think your P looks better than the one you want.

    The eyelids in that pic look pretty low. Are you sure this wasn't more than t TB GTG?:D

    All joking aside, those are some fine pink basses.
