    It's green. Sort of. Pretty cool.

    That bass clef would look even cooler if you had incorporated the TB "Got bass?" motto.

    They messed up your bass! They left the frets off, and couldn't get the stain all one color! To think they let that slip thru QC......

    VERY cool bass. I am greener with envy than your bass, and I don't fade to blue

  11. yeah, that fade is really cool...i wonder how he did that so well! i like the green/gold headstock...i suppose its from all my years living in Wisconsin!

    very nice bass...one question though, what are all those knobs do?

    main vol, bass, mids, treb, and there is a piezo/mag blend and a front/back mag blend
    the switches are: on/off(ie mute) and a mid variable for 800k or 400k
