    so, im buying this bass:

    [​IMG]

    its an old 60's inter-mark. i cant find a damn thing for information about this brand anywhere. but i decided that i want it anyway.
    the neck is thrashed and nothing is really useful except for the body. which works bc thats all i want (he was asking 75 and i offered 25, im buying it tonight) figured it would make a fun project.
    i found a nice ibanez neck that im going to put on it, might have a carbon fiber pickguard made, and trying to decide which bridge i want, i found 4 that i like but cant choose between them.

    are you gonna paint it?
    are you asking for cosmetic opinions?

    im redoing the whole thing, im going to sand it and refinish it.

    this is the neck that im trying to get:

    if i get that one then im going to try and make the new finish match it best i can.

    so the body is going to be close to that color, and the pickguard will hopefully be carbon fiber if i can get it made.



    edit: lol, the poll is a perfect 1 for each of the last 3. doesnt help much.

    I'm torn between 2 and 4, but 4 is shiny. So I voted for option 4.

    see im torn between them bc of the following reasons:

    1 i like bc its looks good, classical almost. just all around nice

    2, as stated above, its just the simplicity of the look that i like there.

    3. i like the way it looks, and i think the color would go good against the new finish choice with the carbon fiber guard.

    4, its so shiny. lol, and it just looks nice.
