    I see some mild hate towards flashy finishes, so here's to the bold and beautiful! Show me your lovely over-the-top glittery gore! Extra bonus points for green metallic with yellow pearl. Extra bonus points for anything, really. Life's too short.

    (I really want to see that yellow on green, though. Or orange on green. But I digress - post pics!)

    I have a Peavey G-Bass in hollowflake but it I can't get a decent image of it to show off the colors. It just looks like it has a rash of tiny white dots in the images I tried but live it's pretty colorful.

    Pearl wouldn't have been half as nice.

    Thats the one thats mostly black with some sporadic flake mixed in? I had one of those years ago too nice bass just couldn't get used to it ergonomically.

    I've switched to shortscales and being that the Peavey is a 35" scale, it now languishes in it's case.

    My left hand tends to not like the skinnier nut widths as much and for some reason that extra 1" scale length made it that much worse

    I had a beautiful redwood top Cirrus, gorgeous and played beautifully, but 35" scale. This was where I found 35" was not for me so much to my chagrin, off it went. If it was 34" I'd still have it.

    Otherwise, I'm only halfway to the title requirements. I have a gold flake ASAT, but no pg. I will accept partial points...

    I only have this one myself - so far. I do have a possible custom build in mind, though.

    Not the bonus points for green/yellow/orange, but that sure is fine. Prime example that pearl on metallic is objectively lovely.

    I've been toying with a black or black pearl PG. Not 100% tho.

    My recent Kiesel build perfectly fits your description... Kiesel factory pic, then my pic:

    That ASAT is fab. There's always room for a PG of you really want full points...

    That’s like if Linda Vaughan (Ms. Hurst Golden Shifter) was a bass.
    Love it.



















    *I got my photo taken with Linda Vaughan once at a car show. I was 18.



    Yeah.
