    No frustration for me either ;)

    I voted for the white finish, because I like simple things.

    This is totally a question of your own taste.

    Me personally, I don't like the color purple on almost anything, and particularily not on a bass, so I'd go with white. White can never be wrong, but I think purple can go out of fashion or look strange in some settings. But that's just my opinion which you really shouldn't take into account at all.

    Purple is cheesy. I voted white, but prefer natural.
  9. Basses, like cars, look awful in white. Purple often doesn't do them justice either.
  10. Neither is my fave, but, of the two, I'd have to go with white. Natural would look better. Cherry Sunburst looks nice (especially over Swamp Ash). I also like their Sapphire Blue.
