Hey everyone. My friend is thinking about getting a Music Man Sterling for his next bass guitar. He wants to get Music Man Sterling that looks like the one this guy is playing in these pics:



My question is- What colour is that Music Man Sterling bass guitar in the above photos? (I’m assuming it’s the same guitar in both.)

He and I think the colour is either Medallion Gold or Translucent Gold.

Which do you guys think it is? Can anyone help?

I would greatly appreciate some input. Thanks in advance!

By the way, here’s the link to all the various Music Man Sterling finishes:

Translucent Gold is translucent and medallion gold is a solid color maybe metallic like I believe. Translucent gold looks better I think.

Holy jesus... another thread on colors?!?!?

And I agree with Fitz - the one on the right is probably natural, but the warm lighting makes it look more golden.

I'm with fitz, I think they're both natural. The picture on the left is just hard to tell, but if they're the same bass, the one on the right is natural I'm pretty sure.

Nope natural is just that: natural. if you look at the warm lighting, then fretboard is lighter than the body. where as in this pic it matches

It is definitely transparent gold:

Pretty conclusive. However, my guess may have something to do with the fact that I didn't know that gold colour existed!

But yeah, as sure as shit, it's transparent gold.
