Ok, after many weeks of research, I have finally decided on the Schecter Elite-5 for my new bass.
The problem?
THE COLOUR

Call me lame, whatever. It's a serious issue.

This is the Honey Sunburst:

And this is the Black Cherry:
http://www.schecterguitars.com/imgs/hr_elite5_bch.jpg

From those pics I would choose the Honey Sunburst, but here is a picture that I found:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/document?cpd=0OEY&doc_id=99371&g=bass&base_pid=513052&index=0

Clearly it is not as good looking as on the Schecter site. I cannot find any other pictures of the Black Cherry, unfortuntely.

Based on the Musician's Friend picture, it makes me think that the real colour is even different that that one, so I am now leaning towards the Black Cherry.

Help? Advice?

EDIT:
RedStar found this for me:

That lookes like poop.

So I'm going for the Honey Sunburst.

Seriously, I have the Elite-4 in black cherry, and I've played one that was honey sunburst. The black cherry looks so much better, the quilted maple top looks so much nicer in the deep red, as opposed to the yellow-type color. The pictures really don't do the black cherry justice, it looks so much better than the honey in person.

My bass has a similar finish to the Honey Sunburst. It looks spectacular.

I would say that, in this case, I would go with the Black Cherry, though.

Thanks alot, I think I've decided on the Black Cherry

from an email he sent me, after I sent him some pics. I think this thread can just die now, no need to keep it going. He saw the light and is going with the Black Cherry, and all is well.
