I recently got an Aries bass in Nightburst finish. I like it a lot. Interestingly, when I ordered my LB70 back in the late 90's they didn't have quite as many color choices - maybe only 50, compared to 500 or whatever today. But the red on quilt always looked SO good in the catalogs and magazine ads.

Don't know how I missed this thread ... that bass is simply stunning. Really fantastic specifications and so well-thought. Can you say something about "shadowburst"? Is that an idea you came up with or do you know if it's been and Option 50 for a while? It sure looks cool ... Congratulations. And thanks for the pictures. :coolpics: How do you like the pickups? The weight? Balance?
