I kinda want the red one to take out the trem arm and put an EMG AB in there somewhere.
Check my Firebird build!-Comment on that bitch so I don't have to double post, even if it's a friendly "YOU SUCK!"

Upright fretted electric bass build!

Looks: OK, and the natural finish one looks quite attractive.
Sound: The P90 and dirty fingers combination looks very promising. Probably a good sound.
Feel: Who knows. Neck shape and access, balance, etc. are a personal thing.
Price: Same as the discontinued Midtown Custom, a wonderful guitar. Not too high, for Gibson.
Bridge: Sucks. Put on a stoptail.

Bottom Line: If I had both the need and the money, this would definitely be on my check-it-out list.

The pinstripe has the ugliest finish, for me at least. Reminds me of a BC RIch finish for some reason

It's nothing like a Vegas, other than 'it has f-holes'.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

A machine can't tell when a brush or nozzle is clogged up, it can't tell when there is a run in paint. They can handle basic finishes okay because you're typically just going for one even layer of colour and accuracy is irrelevant, but even then you still always have people supervising. Paint, other than single-colours and basic bursts, is one of the few things that is still much better done by hand.

edit: and with the new pictures, yup, I'd buy the clear-finished one. Take the arm off, stop the bridge from shifting, whack in a stacked P-90 if the stock one isn't already, rip out the tone control and I'm happy. I've been looking at putting together a chambered or semi-hollow HxP guitar anyway.

I was a Mechanical Engineering student for 2 semesters at the University of Wisconsin. I programmed machines that did very, very finite work. It's actually surprisingly easy to do machine pinstriping. In fact, it's definitely a technology we've had for years. Also, machines definitely can tell when they're clogged up, many have had flow sensors for quite a while.

That said, hand painting pinstripes results in much better quality and much cheaper production costs. Those sorts of pinstriping machine are really only big in like automotive factory line paint booths.
