With a red stain and silver or gold hardware would be gorgeous and classy.


I bet they would do it as an option 50 (I mean...not really, because there would be a real option code for it...but...you know...), and at least now that they have made the plain maple top standard on the SH550, the price of entry would be lower since you are no longer automatically paying for a flamed maple top.


Yes if it was in the same neighbor hood $ as plain maple top it would be a classy looking option that's not "too" hard on the bank account. One like this with Mohogany top would look nice in my music room...

Having a hard time really capturing how hypnotic the sunsetburst is on the Koa, but here`s about the closest I`ve gotten so far:

Emerald green on black limba looks amazing. I've been suffering from severe GAS for the last couple of weeks and did a quick mock up based on this bass.
Except I want a LB.
