    I do love the black cherry so.

    Mine is solid, gloss black, not the flame maple. With the gold hardware and my leopard spotted strap, she is hot.

    I had to vote Blue - my NS-5CR that I waited 5 years for is that colour and lovely it is too!!!!! However, I just picked up my REX2000/5 in Holoflash Black and it has really astonished me!!!!!!!!

    It also turned heads in Sound Control in Glasgow where I got it - sorry to the guys who apparently wanted to buy it, it had already been paid for!!!!!

    Here I come, to save the day......
    music off

    I had the same bass as the ad & it's one sweet color, but I like the nat oil better. I sold it (+ a few others) when I bought my 1st natural Sadowsky

    Looks like I got shafted here:mad: Mine is a red-stain. If I couldn't have one in a natural oil-rubbed finish, I'd choose the red. It's HOT;)

    Ladies and Gentelmen,one of our founding fathers...MR. NINO BROWN!!!!!.thank you brother Nino,that last pic made me cry,I've not yet had my blue stain NS in direct sunlight as of yet,but alas I have an outdoor show at an airfield next saturday and was worried that the shear brilliance of the sun reflecting off of it might burn some retnias,my new one is going to be natural,but I do like the red brother RAM,that is a vrey nice color also:cool:
     
  13. Best one I've seen is a AAAAA flame maple, natural top CR 5string. Local bassist that works at a music store bought it from the store he works at. Looks super duper. And I love natural finishes anyway, but this was cream of the crop. Very good look w/ gold hardware.

  20. Gotta go with Black Cherry. Black Cherry cola is awesome, so, therefore, a Black Cherry stain job would be awesome as well.:D

    Rock on
