    I remember reading somewhere that 40% of the EBMM production volume was black instruments.

    Let's see how the Talk Bass community weighs in.

    I'll name some of the colors in a generic way to allow for minor variations in shades by manufacturer and model year.

    Also, I can't change the poll, so use TV Yellow for any Yellow and Walnut for Natural.

    For a while now, I've wanted an orange guitar/bass. That or a Graffiti Yellow one. My buddy had a Graffiti Yellow strat, and I loved that color.

    I also like the Daphne Blue and Seafoam Green colors.


    I'd definitely choose the Graffiti Yellow, though.

    EDIT:
    I dig a white bass with a tort pickguard, too.
     
  3. in no order, or all a tie I guess 3 or 2 color burst, sunset orange, nat and black.
     
  4. I voted for a couple + specialty cause I really like Gold top..

    Sunburst. After that is transparent Red, then cherry burst / honey burst, and then natural.

    The other colours are nice too. I think grain is hawt ;)

    I really had a tie between natural and sunburst. But I like translucent blue or turquoise as third and 4th choices.

    I love blue. Metallic blue isn't quote my thing. My precision is solid dark blue, but I'd kill for a trans blue on quilt jazz.

    Besides blue, I have a thing for oly white + tort and shell pink (I've been tempted to make my fretless pink)

    I also dig this colour of green

    I picked Metallic Blue/Specialty because I go into pleasure shock anytime I see something Charcoal Frost Metallic with a black PG and maple fret board. It's weird though seeing as my favorite color too is purple and I am currently GASsing over a bright orange bass, but CFM remains for a dream bass/build!
     
  13. Blue... No! YELLOOOOOOOOOoooowww!!!

    Trans blue should have been an option.

    I wish polls could be edited...oh well!

    .........but I currently own a 3 Tone Sunburst and a Violin Burst! :rollno:
