Summer Ash Treatment

Postby songwriter21 » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:12 am

I saw this added onto the last JB5 in the gallery...so what is it?
I play the 5-string bass. Why? More bass.

6'ers are cool, too. ;)

Like Antique Ash, but it's a golden color instead of the Grey/brown color.
I've only seen it on a couple of builds, but usually like the way it looks.

Yea, that's a really good choice to offer those colours. I like the antique ash, but since delivering furniture antiques as a kid I have no desire for the grey European Oak or limed and waxed Pine look myself. It's still nice to have options, I doubt they would do a gloss coat over it just for me though, pretty sure it's limited to satin finishes but correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for the pics/examples...reminds me of grain"ier" alder, and/or the color of White Limba.

should be available in satin and gloss. I’ve seen AAT in gloss this should be no different.
I like that it falls into the “warmer spectrum” of colors

Maybe they have changed to now offer gloss, I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case when I had explored it before but who knows, I could just be outright mistaken on that too.

Summer ash looks like alder to me.
I'll just get alder
