    It is a Squier P-Bass that I recently defretted... it r secksi.

    Anyways, I got bored so I sanded the paint off of it, and now I do not like the way it sounds, it is way to woody.

    I am thinking something dark... black or metallica black. Maybe a deep red so I can just have a line of red basses.

    What do you think?

    (I'm not leaving it Natural, so don't suggest that :p)

    Nah, skip the paint and run with the 'money' theme and get uncut dollar sheets for your top.

    Green. It's the new black.
     
  17. ORANGE!!!!

    Get a gold-ish undercoat, then do a crackle orange metallic overtop. If you can't do that, start with a white bass (or yellow, etc.) and go with stained glass paint.

    Finish with a mirror pickguard... sexy bass...
