Those who know me on Basschat will know my obsession with Chameleon Flip Paint which has been going on for nigh on 20 years 🤣. Here’s a few of my basses.

A month later, and Pharaoh Gold Firemist plus Tort is occupying my every waking thought

I'm feeling the same about the Smoked Almond Metallic Embassy, a tort plate on this would look great. 

I nearly broke but just splurged my money on something else.

I love the look of most natural woods -- apart from buckeye burl, which I hate. Either entirely natural or in a nice trans finish of some sort that shows off the figuring. But my perfect Jazz is either CAR or LPB, matching headstock either way.

CAR , maple board, white pick guard! YUM! Especially when its a slightly darker CAR. Candy Cola is lovely too. There's a red that Dingwall do too (I'll find a pic) which is really rich, Rich. Really rich lol..

I'm so smitten with Ice Blue Metallic that I'm planning to refinish my Sonic Blue homebuilt

The sonic blue looks great , I don’t think I would change that one 👍, I really like the ice blue metallic, I very nearly bought the jazz elite in that colour a while back

+1 on that 😃 Love an indigo flip flop.

 

Quite partial to a sonic blue aswell…  next on my list will be a magenta mist/sparkle….

I only have two basses with the same finish. I like most finishes except anything with gross sparkles (but love CAR as that's subtle).

 

Blue burst is a favourite, but I finished a guitar in it, so recently I went for this:

As a Gibson man, I'm guessing that translucent cherry red is an obvious choice...

So happy with my 20th Anniversary JC Signature, combining cherry red (wine red, technically) with flame maple.  Noice.

 

I'm a sucker for all metallics though.  Currently got a "Smoked Almond Metallic" (gold, basically) Epiphone Embassy...

And a G&L CLF Research L-1000 in Royal Purple Metallic (purple, basi... oh wait, it's not a stupidly named colour)

And there's something inherently classy about black with cream binding...

As long as there is a colour though (not too keen on natural finishes), I'm happy.
