    I always liked the look of the natural grain on the wood.

    if it's got a pickguard; white w/ black pickguard
    deep blue's nice, too

    I've always fancied myself with a mauve bass. Or maybe fuschia. Or some soft pastel colors.



























    Just kidding. I prefer wood showing through it it is stained. If not, give me plain old natural wood.

    I'm going to have to go with either black on metallic green or the color scheme on the Ritter bass picture that I uploaded. Deffinately the Ritter.

    I love the look of Natural wood....I couldn't stand the look of dark blue on my F-Bass, so she is getting re-finished! I'll post pics in about 1 1/2 months!
