    I personaly like more color in a burst then black. I have seen worse then that though.

    Yeah, I've never been a big fan of the standard sunburst. That kinda puts a twist on it that I like.
  8. ahhh! not a fan of it, but the fretboard is nicely shaped. :)
  9. I've seen a lot of Gibson sunbursts like that, with a "blob" in the middle and not much bursting.
  10. I like it. Sunburst is good when the bass has an ugly shape. Your eye is naturally drawn to the color and away from the dark.
  11. Where is the other screw to the bridge pickup!

    You know what? that bass is horrible.

    You should buy it, give it to me and I'll teach them to make such a, a,......... bass. Yeah that'll show them.

    Ya know, I never understood why these are so appealing. They are U-G-L-Y.

    Someone should slap their mother.

    Oh man! Those look awesome! The lefty Jack Casady guitar is gorgeous! If only I were a lefty....and a guitarist...and had the money for such an instrument.

  19. Who did that to those once beautiful instruments :eek:
    makes me very sad indeed. :bawl:
    Especially the p-bass on the far left.
  20. The bass at the top of this thread looks ugly. The headstock of my squier is far nicer, and that has a fairly nice sunburst.
