    Despite myself, I'm sort of taken by the SpongeBob one.
  2. My Ashula arrived a little over a month ago, and I must admit it looks great, and would be apropos anywhere, and in any situation.
    I like the green, but it is very stylized, yet only, if you're sensitive or allergic to that kind of irony.

    Ibanez’s finishes make me feel ways about life.

  4. I prefer the SR375E over those quilted tops:

    If you're on stage playing you're not going to be standing under a sign that says "My bass color is Dragon's Eye!" are you?
    Never bought a bass because I thought the name sounded cool, but…

  7. The very top photo "dragon eye burst" is clearly my favorite. The others try too hard. They are over the top and cheapen the overall look. I hope it plays well.

    Not buying because of a cool name for the hue of color.. as my post “reads” I have played the bass a few times at my local GC and it plays beautifully, the new pickups and electronics sound better than the model previous to this one. I’m torn between both colors as both are visually stunning in person... I was just wondering what others thought of the colors.

    I’m leaning more towards the Dragon Eye - thanks for everyones responses. As usual when it comes in, I will do a full review with lots of pics of finish and the guts of the control cavity.

    It looks like thus far the dragon eye is the majority favorite. So will you go with the majority, or simply choose the one you like best? Congrats on which ever you choose and hope it works out well for you.

  12. The dragon one looks like every other bass. The ocean one is among the coolest finishes I have ever seen. I would pick that one, just because it's different and really pops.

    Dragon Eye is classy.

    Surreal, not so much.

    I'd go with Ocean, myself, but I've always loved blue and green.

    The funny thing is, Ibanez' Ocean Burst is similar to what other makers like Carvin/Kiesel call Dragonburst. (Granted, they did name it Dragon EYE.)

    I’m going with the Dragon Eye. It was my first choice and then I seen the Ocean Burst.. and was a little torn between the two as both sound and play great and lastly look fantastic. As one pointed out, the blue would look great if the band was themed a beachy trop-rock type with band attire. So in light of most everyone absolutely liking my original choice.. I’m going Dragon

    I like both, but I think I'd go with the Dragon burst. I think the Ocean burst is really cool, but I'd probably get tired of it in a few years.
