    What Colour is this? or EBMM Bass Finishes Guide

    Well, this idea has been thrown around some, so I decided to have a go at it. I am by no means an EBMM historian, so this is by no means definitive yet...

    Things I need help with:
    1.Fire Engine Red?!?! Help Please
    2.Better Pics of finishes that are iffy.
    3.Mistakes in general

    If you have better pics send them to this EBMM@fortio.net. I am not looking to keep 50 photos of each finish, I would like to have 2-5 definitive pics of each finish. Maybe we should also keep all "What finish is this?" questions in this thread. Hopefully this can be a useful reference tool like Gav's Serial # Database, so use in good health.

    Solid Finishes
    Black Candy Apple Red Carbon Blue Pearl Copperhead Bronze Desert Gold Egyptian Smoke Graphite Pearl Las Vegas Gold Lava Pearl Medallion Gold Metal Flake Brown Metal Flake Green Peach Pearl Blue Pearl Lavender Pearl Purple Radiance Red Rolls Burgundy Sapphire Black Stealth Teal Pearl White

    Trans Finishes
    Black Cherryburst Cherryburst Honeyburst Natural Original Sunburst Pacific Blueburst Tobacco Sunburst Trans Blue Trans Gold Trans Green Trans Orange Trans Purple Trans Red Trans Teal Green Trans White Vintage Sunburst

    Sparkle Finishes
    Autumn Redburst Autumn Redrise Black Sparkle Blue Dawn Burnt Apple Fuschia Sparkle Glacial Blue Sparkle Gremlin Green Sparkle Gold Sparkle Midnight Blue Sparkle Red Sparkle Silver Sparkle Stratus Blue Sparkle White Sparkle

    Limited Edition/Run Finishes
    Buttercreme Envy Green Fritz the Cat Gunsmoke Silver Logan Green Radiance Red Red Hot Sherwood Green

    *Disclamer* if I am using one of your pics and you wish me not to use, please email me at EBMM@fortio.net and I will comply with your wishes. I have decided to use the English spelling of 'Colour' because the American spelling looks funny to me for some reason

    Nice idea! You're more than welcome to whatever photos I have.

    Logan Green is not what you have in the photos, though - Logan Green can be seen most clearly on Dargin's avatar or my Logan Green Flame Bongo. What you've go there is Kermit, and I forget the real name of that green.

    I'll keep looking and let you know what I find and help yourself to my photos and let me know if you need anything else.

    Haha! Someone used my photo without my permission! I'm going to sue your pants off! I'm going to be stinking rich!

    Just kidding. I'm honored to see my Glacier Blue Sparkle made it on there.

    Maybe we should make it a sticky thread for easy reference and to remind Forumites to make contributions.

    Good idea?

    Feel free to take any of my Sparkle Pictures, see the link below.

    The Purple/Pink sparkle is Fuschia Sparkle, it's a one of a kind color. I'll try to take some better pictures in a day or so. I've got a 7 year old Bday party today.

    Question for the group...Are Midnight Blue Sparkle, Stratus Blue Sparkle and Glacial Blue Sparkle three distinct finishes or is one of them the same as the other?
