    I'd go single H, of course, but I can see what you're saying here.

    From the "Now It Can Almost Be Told" files: conversations with Dargin about a Caprice led to some interesting thoughts on paint. Now, left to my own devices, I'd go purple sparkle or some such gaudy thing. Dargin seldom offers advice, really, which sometimes I love about him, not always but mostly I do. Long ago, we were having an exchange about a bass I thought I wanted, and he said, "Let me just build you one." And that build was the coWpilot Utility Bass, the red Bongo 5H which has been my security blanket for - ten years? Maybe longer than that. Definitely longer than that, because it was already my go-to bass in 2006, when everyone from EBMM and a few others signed it with a Sharpie.

    So Dargie has convinced me that his ideas about a unique paint scheme for my future Caprice is better than purple Sparkle.

    Hard to imagine 'better than purple sparkle', isn't it?

    More as we get closer to fruition.

    I will probably be ordering another bass once my Classic Stingray arrives this summer.... it will either be a Sterling 5 or another SR5.... I am addicted to SR5's but I really want a Sterling 5. Leaning heavily towards Sterling 5 Natural Ash, Maple, black PG...... oooooh I get all wobbly just thinking about it!

    Yep... I made it a whole 11 hours and 52 minutes after having the idea in the middle of the night. Actually, YouTube is as much to blame as Jack is.

    I saw a firemist purple Bongo 5HH in GC in LA last weekend. I don't need another, but dang that was a purdy bass. I'm waiting on a tangerine fretless HS I ordered a few weeks ago thru Pete, but that purple - wow!

    Oh, that purple speaks to me. It visits me in my dreams. It haunts me. It beckons to me. Alas, I have a new bass and so the purple Bongo is not to be. *sigh*

    So...the Caprice doesn't come in that snazzy new purple, does it? Because I'd be in trouble then.

    I just got my 30th Anniversary Stingray 5 a few weeks ago. Now that I saw Guitar Center and Musicians Friend have an exclusive purple Bongo with a roasted neck, I'm thinking I need to pull the trigger on that.
