    On my screen it looks like it hovers somewhere between blue and green. It's not quite teal, but in that general range. It may be different in person.

    I have a candy apple green bass and always get compliments on it. I am surprised green is not more popular.

    Maybe people are still traumatized by that pea soup green/lime/yellow (Heinz) of many years ago and have since eschewed green!

    I am a big fan as well of the Charging Green colour. There will always be colour options that are more popular than others. Music man has always been good at offering quite a few interesting options to choose from, that go beyond the standard black, red, and blue.

    Interestingly, Green is the 2nd most preferred color among men, and 3rd most preferred among women.

    Also, my dream was always to get my Camaro back to its original color. I think Citrus Green is simply the coolest.

    I miss that Camaro, loved driving it out to Montano de Oro when I live in SLO.

    I have the Dargie I, II and an Emerald Green! However, I'm all about the Sterlings, so I wish they would start offering the newer finishes on those instead of just giving the Stringrays love.

    I am not sure I believe that chart. It's unusual to see red so low.

    Ya I was kinda hoping they would have introduced the Charging Green option for the Stingray guitar as well.

    I am really loving the Charging Green. I need a backup for my Stingray, right?

    I was looking for a different study that I recalled about green being the most popular color for children, but I couldn't find it. I thought it might explain something about green bass enthusiasts like myself.

    This is where that graphic came from, not a great methodology, but 1,695 responses is a reasonably large study. Results | What's your favorite color?
