Post stick options-info ?
wondering around the stick site

can't find much info regarding color/inlay color
tuners

for example:

how can i see the front of all railboard colors?
all linear inlays colors? how could i know if a stick color w/ inlays color will look right?

tuners colors? what is hipshot closed gear/open gear?

there are only lists of colors and options
but not enough pics. to show what those lists mean

any info will help

tnx

Boaz

There are more photos in the Hot Shots area on Stick's website (including my own Blue Railboard w/Silver glitter linear inlays). Also some shots of the tuners (open & closed, gold & chrome). I was looking for this too before I ordered my Railboard. There weren't many good shots of the various colors. It would be nice to have a catalog of all wood/alum colors along with the inlay materials..

Tnx but still not helpful enough.
Still can’t tell the difference between closed and open tuners.

Also when ordering I suppose you need to have all the options info..

I went with the closed tuners just to keep maint lower. The open tuners tend to collect dust & debris.

Hi Boaz,

With the pictures in this gallery page, all the tuners are "open back" style. http://www.stick.com/instruments/tuners/ This means the gear is exposed.

However, in the below picture of the StickBass in Tarara wood, the tuners are "closed back" style. These tuners have a cover over the gear.

My preference would be closed back. :)
