I have to confess that I’m a sucker for anything green – either eco-green or just plain green-green. I had a green bass (of the green-green sort) for a while – a 5 string Status Graphite Bass – but have been at the more traditional end of the spectrum for a while, so Musicman’s latest little limited edition bass grabbed my attention. The Dargie Delight Limited Edition package includes a very green (as in green-green) Stingray.
I say green, but it is actually a two tone iridescent green finish called “Caramel Apple Delight” – the picture gives a feel, but you’ll have to see it in the flesh to capture the full glory of it! Definitely an eye catching paint job – rare on basses, but I’m sure you can point me to some other examples! The bass also has striking custom inlays on the neck which mark it out. Orders are only open for a few more days – August 13th 2009 – I’ve spotted that The Perfect Bass are shipping them out. The limited edition stretches to most of the other models in the Musicman range, so if you aren’t a Stingray kind of a person, there are other options available, but you’ve got to like it green!
