Aye to this. White pearl is my pick most of the time.

I've tried flats on mine a few times. They're cool, but I prefer rounds by a mile.

I have a 2008 AS Jazz in Blizzard Pearl, as pictured above, and I like the parchment pickguard on it just fine. So, as always, YMMV. I think the white pickguard looks just fine on the 2006 P-Bass.

If you like black or tort.....great! Play what you like, like what you play......

Yeah, I could be wrong but I can't imagine tort could EVER look good on that color.

Looks just fine the way it is. IMO

Pearloid looks cheesy. Put a black PG on it.

I saw a strat with a mirrored pg. I also thought that looked cool. But if I change it I think it will be black. That combo on the jazz looks hot. Btw thanks all for liking my new baby

I also think the parchment or white pearloid look great on the Blizzard Pearl, but I like them better when the bass has a maple board. Has an awesome and "clean" look with the maple board. With the rosewood, I prefer my black/white/black.

Just for the record, I first put tort and flats on my P Bass before there WAS a TB! Al Gore had invented the Internet by then, but us common folk didn't know about it yet.

Both are true - just like apple pie also tastes better with ice cream, a P Bass rocks harder with rounds...
