    sunburst or black.
  4. I actually had one of those basses, cool bass, very fun. I know for a fact red looks really sweet, and I would personally get red if I were getting it again. Gold pickgaurd against red really looks sharp. Is there a particular reason you want rosewood? Im only asking because Maple fingerboard with the red looks even more killer, but anway you go, cool bass.
  5. rusty

    With the gold pickguard and rosewood fretboard, I vote for Black or Sunburst :)

    I vote for black. Mine is black, but I replaced the gold pickguard with a black pearl one. Looks much better IMO.

    my color VVVV my baby:p

    Get whatever matches your high-heal shoes:]
  8. I feel that black is boring, hehe, both my guitarist's guitars are black, so I got my bass in red. But red is my lucky color though... for my horoscope. My strap is red too!
  9. Red or black.

    The gold pickguard would look good with red, or black.

    It would look like shiite with the white or sunburst.
  10. Red ones go faster! ;)

    Must be red!

    Hey! I'm about to buy the very same bass in 2 weeks or so. I was thinking about getting the black one myself. Black n gold always looks good.
  12. what if i got sunburst but changed the pickguard to a black tortise pick guard so it will look kind of like a vintage bass.
