Hi everyone, I need your help to spend money! :) I'm wanting to order an ABI-6 but I don't know what kind of finish I would like, so I want your input. What finishes do you like? What don't you like? What finish would you like to see Sheldon do that he hasn't before? What finish does Sheldon do that makes you drool? Give me your thoughts. Pictures welcome and encouraged! :D I think I would like a trans burst or similar finish like the whalepool burst (except I'm not a fan of that particular finish) or better yet, the orange-to-red burst over quilted maple on Martens-Koop's ABI (first page of "Show Your Dingwall" thread). I think I'd prefer something like that over natural or solid colour, but I'm open to hear your suggestions. Fire away! (Man, where's JJ when you need him! :roll: :P )

That orange to red burst is called honey amberburst and it is really nice one. [img:3lfcw2of]http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w267/Smallmouth_Bass/20070301-005DingwallABI.jpg[/img:3lfcw2of] One that I haven't seen on the Afterburners that might be cool is a green to blue burst. A flame top natural is always nice as well and it blends in with the naked neck heel, although I think the newer coloured ones have it painted black now.

That one looks excactly like mine. If I had to choose another one, I'd go quilted maple, natural. Something like this: [img:1idv7s3s]http://www.dingwallguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/afterburner-2-gallery/abii-le-quilt-ng-body-closeup-web-size.jpg[/img:1idv7s3s] I've never seen a natural quilt maple ABI, but I've seen a few painted quilt maple one-offs. No harm in asking.

Yeah, natural looks good, and so does Honey Amberburst, but I'm hoping for something a little more unique (which may not be possible on the ABI). You never know - the worst that can happen is Sheldon to say no. I would prefer quilt to flame maple methinks.

[attachment=0:jz5u5vwu]ab1.jpg[/attachment:jz5u5vwu] That neck looks bubinga? If you could do the body out of bubinga also and get a "different colored natural ABI". That'd be cool. I'd love it in walnut even more I think. Or maybe that neck with the amberburst...

I talked to Sheldon about that bass and it doesn't look like bubinga is in the cards. I got all excited when I saw that picture! I think that Bubinga looks awesome!
