    Fantastic, terrific examples! I want a pink bass for my next custom build.

    Any more pink out there?:)

    I had a HOT PINK KRAMER Forum (or was it a Focus)... Anyway... Back in the 80's. EMG PJ pickups with a volume, tone and a selctor switch. Sorry, no pics. You'll just have to put one in your head. Funny thing...I kinda wish I had that bass. It would make a great 80's cover band gig bass. Ah.......the 80's.

    Wow that pink Sadowsky is so pretty!

    I have always loved Munjibunga's pink Lakland
    LaklandPinkJO5FullTB01.

    Also someone recently posted a beatiful shell pink jazz in the classifieds. That bass is hot :) Edit: found it

    I know they aren't trans-pink but still.
     
  8. Somebody here has the most beautiful ESP Edwards bass in salmon pink over quilt maple - maybe he'll see this thread, and post it for you.
     
  9. I'm not afraid to say it ....... I like pink!
    :)
     
  10. Man, I somewhat miss munjibunga and his basses :bawl:

    Another stunner. I suppose the more white pigment in the paint, the less one will see of the grain hence most of these examples have a salmon-ish hue rather than a Barbie Pink.

    I saw a translucent pink Alembic Stanley Clarke model bass at a guitar show, maybe someone here has it?

    I don't believe it! I've actually found the exact finish I'd like on my custom bass:

    Absolutely Stunning.

    Blurb reads:

    One of the rarest of all PRS colors, the Bonni Pink was originiated by our friend Bonni Lloyd who asked Paul to duplicate the color of her favorite Chuck Taylor Converse Shoes. This color is sought after worldwide and is an essential for any PRS collection.This one is a lovely '93 CE 24 with fantastic flame top.

    Anyone know whether you can simply buy a can of this stuff and start spraying?

    Not mine, but interesting from Nordy:

  17. I feel like I have the chicken pox all over again.
    I'm assuming that wasn't a standard option for the nordy?

    According to the Nordy site its inlaid Ebony. Not really to my taste, but it does look pretty cool (objectively speaking).
     
  19. With the trans "hot pink" Nordy, the circles are inlaid ebony. As for standard Nordy colours - here's mine in Shell Pink

  20. My next trans finish will be trans shell pink. I have trans surf green jazz, and a trans sonic blue strat. I haven't started it yet, so no pics. I kinda have a thing for trans pastels.
