    body wood: zebrano
    neck woods: 7 piece: 4 piece ovankol 3 piece wenge
    tigerstripe ebony fingerboard standard spacing
    matching zebrano headstock
    brass JAN
    satin chrome finish hardware
    emerald green high polish color
    EMG active J pups
    MEC 3 band active same as thumb NT
    satin chrome knobs.... also thought about hardware being black

    by satin chrome do you mean platinum?

    cuz there's a guy on the forum that has a green forteress MM with platinum hardware and it looks crazy.

    this is what i like to see:D thanks for the opinions you guys are helpful i appreciate it. i think im gonna go with black hardware i think it will make the emerald green pop out even more. i think the woods will give the bass a lot of character. and i have EMG's in my 98 thumb love the sound. i dunno give me more i havent seen a emerald green bass in the custom gallery, i think its gonna be a green growler :D :D :D
