    I’d go back to the black.

    The leopard print PG makes it look like a purse with a chihuahua hidden inside on a shopping trip to Ross.

    Hey, that's exactly it's attraction... Just like a middle aged dyed blonde in a faux leopard coat, it's appearance says exactly what it's supposed to!! {-And they'll both grow better and better on you with time...} ;)
    Enjoy,

    Hah! So, what's the appearance say exactly? "I'm past my prime and still think I'm young. But I'm due for a mammogram and the spray tan doesn't spray into my wrinkles anymore."

    Only if you are going to pair it with a leopard print body suit.

    Nah... But you've really gotta be old enough to interprert and dig it yourself. It says "I'm different and independant and I don't give a good s**t whatever you may think about it. And I'm hot stuff too, so if you're man enough to deal with all that then say hello. Otherwise get lost.."

  14. So I gotta ask where you found that? Any Tokyo Tortoise I've ever run across is 1 ply where this obviously is w/b/w/t. I like it. It's interesting. So where is it from?

    It is interesting... really wish it was a smaller pattern of tort and then I think I would like it better... I bought it on eBay from a UK pickguard maker: earlpilanz

    Whoa! I think you have more P basses than I do, but some of my father's P basses live with me...I don't have a complete family shot, but I have a '51 Reissue, a 1970 refin, a 1975 parts P, a 1998 American Standard, a Highway 1, an Aerodyne P, a fretless Jazz Bass Special (really a P), a Mendel P, a Cowpoke, a P Lyte. And I'm still envious of your collection! :thumbsup:

    What is that finish on that bass called? I really like that and it looks really good with neck. Not sure if it's just the lighting, but is that a roasted neck?

    It’s a roasted maple neck on a butterscotch blonde body

    Nice. I used to have a bass with a very similar finish but something about the lighting in your pic makes it look different. Here was my butterscotch StingRay:
