What is your Favorite "COOL LOOKING" Colour Combination on a Bass that you don't Own?

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    Personally, I love some of the more limited EBMM colours for the "cool" factor.

    Silver sparkle with a matching headstock looks amazing, gold sparkle is something I could see myself playing Play that Funky Music White Boy and Burnt Apple sparkle is just downright cool. I prefer rosewood boards, but maple can look good on these colours too.

    Besides that, a black or maple RIC looks great as does a Geddy Lee Jazz.

    What do you like that you don't own?

    I love some of the Pedula colors and Alembic and Carl Tompson have some of the best Wood colors.

    I dig the silver sparkle too.
    I've always liked the Fender Sienna Burst and the aged Olympic White on a Jazz.

    Yep, that EBMM cherryburst is HOT! Also, the Egyptian Smoke finish from Ernie Ball is beautiful.
