As you browse this catalog, you'll come across purple 4-string and 5-string bass models from respected brands like Squier, ESP and G&L. Ibanez even offers an affordably-priced purple bass for beginners: the GSRM20 Mikro Short-Scale Bass Guitar sports a comfortable small neck so it's very easy to play. In fact, its compact size also makes it a great choice for touring pros who want to hone their skills on the road in a cramped tour bus. With that being said, the metallic purple finish of this bass was meant to be seen and pairs amazingly with any loud and proud rocker who wants to flaunt their rebellious side.
Speaking of "rebellious", another killer groove machine here is the ESP LTD F-155DX 5-String Bass Guitar. The dark, see-thru purple finish on this bass is a perfect complement to its razor-sharp shape that's basically a cross between a Route 66 Interstate sign and Dungeons & Dragons weaponry. Metal bassists who want to get fancy with their scales will love the addition of a 5th string while the dual ESP SB-5 pickups with ABQ-3 3 band EQ gives you a wide range of tone-shaping capabilities.
And there are other purple bass guitars here as well, ranging from generously priced Squier Affinity Jazz Basses to pro-level powerhouses like the G&L L-2000. Whichever purple bass grabs your attention on this page, you can expect more than a few heads to turn in your direction during live performances. As the old saying goes, "Be eccentric now; don't wait for old age to wear purple". In other words, take a chance, be daring, and make your move!
