Blackburst

Hey, I was the BadAss player that contacted the KCC when we took delivery of our BABE's. I think I spoke with Brad? and he included "Blackburst" as a color option so we could register our BABE's .....

I was under the impression "Blackburst" was going to be a proprietary color for our BadAss LE's.

As it was explained to me:

Exclusivity of the blackburst scheme was granted to GuitarManNYC (Flash) and BadAssBassPlayers.com (Harleyyy) for a limited time, with G&L reserving the right to take it to regular production upon expiration of the exclusivity agreement. I would guess that the agreement has expired, as blackburst is available as a regular Premier Finish.

When the LE was done in 2007, Blackburst was a color G&L had experimented with but had never put into production. They were so pleased with the BABP LE that they added it as a production color in 2008. To me the color is a little tricky - on a nice piece of ash it looks great. On a plain one it doesn't look so good.

Blackburst is one of my favorite Beatles songs...



"blackburst singing in the dead of night." it works, right?



sorry, Paul...
