Req: Pics of Purple Basses and Guitars!

Postby Johnland82 » Fri May 25, 2018 3:12 pm

Hey Folks!

It's that time again, I'm putting in for a new build. I want to go with a purple PB, and I'm not sure if I want to go with metallic grape jelly or translucent purple. I'm also not decided on glossy or matte. I will likely keep the stock neck and body wood options to keep costs down.

I would love to see some pics of your purple Carvin's/Kiesels.

Thanks!

That is a beautiful guitar!

White pickups look great with that finish!

Killer guitars, thanks everyone!

I ended up going with a Moss Green and Emerald burst P4 with a Zebrawood fingerboard.

I was dead set on purple until I found out that there were no white bass pickups (bummer!).

My next guitar will likely be a satin grape jelly Aries with white pickups.


I can't wait for my bass!
