    I like a nice, interesting woodgrain. Maybe even tinted, a bit.
     
  10. Fretless5er fan, this is strictly to help you with your question marks for your quotes. The one about leather sleeves is a comedian by the name of Demitri Martin. Hilarious, I might add.

    Pretty much any darker colors. Black, midnight/gunmetal blue, blood red/wine, those type colors.

    About the most vile color on a bass to me is a amberburst or light gold (reference the Pedulla color chart)

    I don't think color is really important. I think as long as it's a good bass and you like it, it doesn't really matter what color it is. But, if there are choices, pick your favorite. Personally, I like black. Just try not to make it wicked flashy or something that sucks to look at during a show. :)
     
  20. Nun colored,
    Or Au Natural if you prefer.
