I'm repainting the base part of my bass, and I need help in deciding color/design. It needs to be simple, yet creative. 2 or 3 colors, and easily masked.

If you're unfamiliar with the term "masking" - http://www.siraceservices.com/paint-mask.htm click Paint Masks on the left and there's the basic idea...
You put tape down so the area taped doesn't get paint on it...

my current idea is to do a black and white theme, with a white base then mask a few galaxies onto it, and about 30 stars or something ... Anyone have any ideas? Fire / spikes are out of the question. They do not belong on instruments.

If I were you I'd paint it a nice solid color and then to stripes running from neck-to-bridge area. Real nice colors, like a deep red body, and deep blue and green stripes.

Like this:

Body
Stripe
Stripe

Not exactly but with a white stripe inbetween the green and blue it'll look sick.

I'll draw it for you because I feel like it. You are not to question me.

I say, get a real work of art on the pick gaurd, then put a plastic laminate over it so you don't scratch it. that would be badass. :thumbsup: it might cost a pretty penny though...
