    O.k. after much mulling I have decided to order an SB-2 as my first G&L. It just edged out the L-2000 although I'm sure I will need one of them in the future.

    So, I like white when it comes to traditional looking basses but the couple of white ones I could find in town are both a very non traditional pearl white (although one had wood binding *drool*) The manager at one of the shops had just gotten his personal custom order which was vintage white with a cream pickguard, satin neck and painted headstock (looked good but a bit..... "pale" if that makes sense).

    So I was thinking Vintage white with the cream pg and gun oil tint #7 neck with the headstock left unpainted.

    I have scoured the internet and found no pictures of said combo. I know rosewood goes well with white but I really want a maple board.

    Does anybody have a pic of this combo or have you seen it in person? I am curious how the darker neck would look with the body colour.

    Would the #7 neck balance O.K. ? I suppose it would as It looks like the SB-1's had that neck and body combo.

    Said it before, say it again: crap I'm long winded! :bassist:

    Not the exact combo you want, but here's an example of Vintage White. In person, it's more of a cream color; it was brightened by the flash:

    You might also consider the blonde finish, which is slightly translucent. I'm a big fan of vintage white, but had a G&L Climax bass in blonde which I almost kept just for the finish although the bass just wasn't my thing.

    If you're set on a #7 neck, you might be looking at a special order. The SB-2 comes standard with the #8 and I don't think I've ever come across one with a #7. Doesn't mean they're not out there, but if you're set on a particular finish your odds may be slim.

    Good luck. I love my SB-2. I think it's one of the most elegant bass designs out there.
