    what color does the finish look like when it gets to your door... i think that green is nice but was looking for more of a sea foam green colored bass so i could drop on a black PG... any pics (or photoshops w/ a black PG) would help too thanks

    If I remember right...SX's vintage green is more like a sherwood green color aka darker green. Far from sea foam.

    Why don't you send them an email? I emailed 'em yesterday about a natural finish PJ bass and got a response in a few hours. Couldn't hurt.

    Here is a pic of mine, which just arrived last week. HOWEVER the pic shows it being lighter and more seafoam-ish than it really is. It's really darker with more blue in it--too subtle for Photoshop Elements to tweak, at least in my hands. The SX website's pic is probably more accurate than mine, actually. It's more toward the industrial enamel-school locker side. Not Sherwood at least as far as I recall (and not metallic) but not far from it. As I posted with this pic last week, with the white guard it looks like a two-tone color combo you might have seen on an Edsel, DeSoto or other not-quite-cool-enough late 50s car. Not at all sure that a black pg would work with it.

    I like the color quite a bit, but maybe that's just me!

    (ps: Definitely not me in pic, though I flatter myself she might take after me in some ways.)
