    I love it. Is it that dark in real life, or is it just the lighting?

    I'd love it even more if it was more vibrant, but it's still beautiful.
  4. Not really my kinf of bass or colour! Sorry :)

    Bet it sounds good though, all that matters.

    "OMG" says it all and to misquote Henry ford..."My bass can be any colour you like, as long as it's black" :D

    I like it.

    Is it Peavey's Black Violet? The thing about that color from Peavey is that i can vary a lot: From what you have which is a truer Baltimore Ravensish purple (blue shifted) to a pinker sort of Minnesota Vikingsish (red shifted) purple.

    I have a BXP AC Millennium that got made on a day when there was apparently more red in the paint mix. I like it, but I wish it was a truer more blue violet like the one here.

    It's a Peavey Millennium Plus 5 - I'm not sure on the exact color. I think I have a knee jerk reaction to purple because I prefer more natural colors in basses, but it is a nice purple. I especially like the figuring in the maple top!

    The color is awesome. Very sexy.

    The first thing that popped in my mind after was that the neck didn't match the niceness of the body. But I also think it might be the camera.

    If I bought it I'd eventually look into refinishing in natural or maybe a nice amber. A sunburst might be nice as well.
  14. I would gladly trade my Trans Blue Millennium 5 Plus for it!

    It's OK. As far as purple goes. Thankfully it doesn't have gold hardware.

    Color seems pretty good.

    Photography could be better, though. :p

    Maybe if I buy it we could do a trade. Trans blue sounds better to me!
  20. Ahh, just the response I was hoping for:hyper::D:hyper::D:hyper:. Shall we carry this over to PM?
