  1. Alrighty,

    I've decided to buy the Yamaha BB414, but I'm stuck on which colour I should buy; it's pretty much a 3 way tie for me.

    :meh:

    Here's a link with pictures of all 3 colours:

    :help: a brother out, and let me know which colours you guys would get.

    Thanks in advance for the input,

    EDIT:
    I've been thinking about the colours and I have this to add:

    BLACK PEARL - It's a classic, but it may get boring. Also, I saw the guy from the Goo Goo Dolls playing a black BB414 on their newest video, and I almost barfed.

    ORANGE METALLIC - It's stands out the most, but it might be a little too loud.

    WINE RED - There's something about a "burst"-style finish that looks wrong to me without a pickguard. And I don't like No Doubt that much.

    Maybe I should just go to the local music shop and buy a blem regardless of colour, eh?

    Thanks again for the input, guys. I'm surprised at how tight a race it's been!

    :D

  2. I've got a metallic orange and I love the colour and the bass. The wine red looks good as well though.
     
  3. Holy crap I can't make up my mind. All the colours look good.
     
  4. Alright I've picked one and voted.

  7. It's got to be the wine red my man.

    The orange has got something going on, but I think it would quickly start to annoy me, and that glossy black just looks cheap. The red on, the other hand, is one of the better finishes that I've seen, on any bass. Very stylish.

    Cheers

  9. Voted orange, but I might have to reconsider the wine red - really pretty color and looks good on the bass.

    I really dig that orange metallic. I'd go with that for sure.
     
  11. I haven't seen the orange in person but I can tell you that photos don't do the wine red any justice.

    In person, it's nice, deep, and rich -- it's a very classy look!
     
  12. any pics?
     
  13. Orange you glad I didn't say apple? Sorry. My 4 year old has been saying that all week. All the colors looks good, but the one I pulled down at Sam Ash was orange - it looked the best.

    I voted for black. I don't care too much for the other colors.

    i think you should get orange and when you get bored of it sand off that paint and put a gloss on it for a natrual look!

    That specific bass looks best in orange.
