I've never done one of these & there is probably an easier way to do it but here goes.
Image
My number one: AVRI Jazzmaster
Image
My custom built Rankmaster
Image
My Japanese Jaguar
Image
Late 60's SG Bass with a Badass bridge & PBass pickup added (not by me)
Image
XIIish build
Image
My 2005ish Tele Deluxe
Image
Gibson L6S tuned to C
Image
Ovation Magnum Bass

I've got a few more but they're down at the studio. I will update with pics soon.

I love that bass. It really FEELS like a bass if that makes sense.

Man, you and I are tuned to very similar wavelengths when it comes to color asthetics. I see your Sage Green bass and Iris Mist offset and raise you a Lake Placid tele:

What is this Iris Mist and where can I buy in bulk? That is such a sweet colour, are those custom paint jobs?
I'd love to have an Iris Mist to go with my Burgundy Mist. The word Mist is such a perfect adjective when it comes to colours like those.

Mine was nitro from Guitar Mill, nanamour's was diy lacquer iirc. It's an old color used on Chevy Impalas and such. Mine turned out a little more silver than lilac or iris or whatever, I still envy nanamour's jag.

Yep, it's a mid-60s Dupont GM colour, so kind of a potential Fender custom colour that never was.

I finished my Jaguar with acrylic lacquer spray cans from automotivetouchup.com, followed by Reranch nitro clear. The automotivetouchup paint cans are perhaps a hair overpriced for what they are but in my experience it's a quality product and they have a selection of colours from nearly any make, model, and year of car imaginable.

IIRC they do sell in bulk if that's yer joint.

The Jag looks pretty silver too under less saturated lighting. Your JM looks fantastic btw; normally not a tort guy at all, especially on metallics, but great call on the burgundy(?) Spitfire!

Thanks, dude! I'm an OSG cliche for being tort-obsessed. It's a burgundy subtle/speckled 60's Spitfire, and my crappy iphone picture really does not do it justice - the guy does spectacular work.

Iris Mist is one of my favorite colors too! I had Doug build me this Banshee using Iris Mist a couple of years ago. Love how it changes from purple'ish to grey. Excellent color. Looks great on a Jazzmaster!

I actually have no cases right now, which is a damn shame. I don't play out, though, so they're all resting in places within my bedroom where they can't become damaged.
