Shame about the paint problems, but that aside it sure is beautiful.

Allright so after a lot of drama regarding the finish, Blaine will finally get his bass. The finish had to be changed since LPB just couldn't get sourced anywhere in this country and my local supplier's colour matching service came nowhere close to LPB :rollno: In the end I had to match it myself as best as I could. I wouldn't call it LPB anymore though, more like "blue disco ball flake" :D

All the rest of the pics are with flash on in a dark room so it really looks a hellalot shinier than in person

Wow, I've got to say that I do like that colour. Makes standard LBP look quite boring. That's a really nice surprise :cool:
