    I am stongly consedering getting a 5 string Gecko Bass so any sugestions on what color. I think i might want to go with a flame or quilt top. I will go with a maple neck and finger board.
     
  2. I think a flame maple top with a sunburst finish looks great on a Gecko.

    I'd make the Gecko look like Larry Kaye's Sadowsky (color combo wise).

    man, quite posting pics of that bass! your gonna make me do something stupid like sell and organ or something like that! BTW, did Larry ever sell it?

    hey MM, go with either a 3 tone sunburst or a cherry sunburst with a maple neck... hard to go wrong!

    i think you should go with figured walnut on maple(or some light colored wood)w/ a black accent stripe
