    Ha!
    That's personal taste -- but the spalted / white is really amazing. It's like a movie with great special effects. "That was a bad movie, but remember when Johnny turned into a ... ?!"

    Not ugly in the least (but not a very flattering photo ether...). Brubakers are one of my all time favorites, and that one has it all, Semi-hollow, White Woodburst on Spalt, Spalted board, single-cut, I WANT, I WANT!!!!


    We'll ingore the source of the photo.... :bag:

    I like it, although it does look as if someone painted it white and violated it with a welding torch. :D

    I don´t like the pickups color. They don´t match the rest of the bass

    Blackbird, your post is impressing me:

    ...and I can ride my bike real fast! :D Grazie.

    I agree on the pickups. I think luthiers have caught on to the fact that bassists are the only musicians who'll buy an instrument made out of otherwise "ugly" pieces of wood.

    If it weren't so white in the middle, it would look very good.
