    Why no black metallic flake? I noticed Warmoth does not have this color option, but I think a jazz in black flake would look awesome.

    Personally, I'm a burst guy. All of my basses are bursts and that's the way I like it! :D However, I do think that G&L's flaked finishes are GORGEOUS!

    Lots of other nice looking basses in this thread, too.

    Great thread! I've been thinking of refinishing my natural VM Jazz with a flake finish but I can't decide on what color I want. It has a maple fretboard with black inlays amd binding and it has a tortoise pickguard and I really want to keep the pickguard on it. Any thoughts?

    I love the look of flakes, but they aren't for me.

    The only flake I ever wanted to own (and still do!) Is the one that Steve Harris use to play...Up the Irons!...:bassist:
