    What color would you choose?

    The finish got messed up and it will be refinished for free. This picture DOES NOT show the damage.

    -------------------------------------
    ***Edit: I bought it sued and had it sent straight to Rogers shop. It was there for a setup and when the pickguard was removed a large piece of finish pulled away from the body; past where the pickguard covers. Not there fault. It Happens.

    It is being re-sprayed for free. Roger kicks @ss! He is also sending me a loner until it is done.

    Original color or something else? Any color! Tobacco, Black, Deep Midnight Blue that is slightly translucent liek this Deep Burgundy, a green, etc...? Maybe the same color but more of a burst?

    Best PJ5 Color???

    If you ordered it in that color, why not keep it that color?

    That's a beautiful colour. Was it badly done or just the wrong colour?

    Everybody and their brother has a sunburst bass, including me. I think that deep maroony purple color is unusual and beautiful. If not that, I'd go for a darker ocean turquoise or sherwood green.

    I really like the way it looks now. What happened to the finish? I know that as soon as I touch a bass there will be a blemish on the finish so I would probably just leave it unless you wanted another color. If thats the case I would go with burst/tort or olympic white/tort

    Yeah. It's a great color. Why change a good thing?

    I vote for keeping it the same color, its. But if I HAD to change its color I'd say go white. I've got a mean case of GAS for a white Jazz, mmmmm.
