  1. Want to know what color pickguard you have on your black bass guitar. Mine is black blacktop jazz with black pickguard. Want a little variety, too much of one color. What do you have and how does it look? Pictures appreciated.

    ennui, az
    I'll have an IPA, please.
    Mine black Jazz came with a white 'guard, and I took it off. Kinda like the look of a naked J bass.

    If I put one on now, it'd be b/w/b, ano gold, or dark tort.

  4. What, a black bass player can't have a pickguard?!?!?!?!*

    ***In my best Eddie Murphy tone.***
  5. Black on black looks best IMO. Check out my Celinder:

    On a black P or J style IMHO you can't beat either a black or tort 'guard.....

    Had a chrome diamond plate style on a older black P deluxe. A brushed/semi polished aluminum style on a black Hartke XL bass. And a mirrored style on a black jazz. All had chrome hardware. But I like my motorcycles in black and chrome as well. :D
  8. LOL!!!

    Anyways, tort or b/w/b for me.
  9. Other than black, I'd go tort. I don't have a pic though... Mine's black on black.

    Agreed....Bongo 4HH Stealth. All black....ebony FB as well.
    Black is the new black.
  12. Black does look good if it's got a maple neck, but I don't enjoy a blacked-out bass with a rosewood neck. Tort is my go to for either neck wood.

  13. Single ply Black is my answer:

    4 ply Tort on RW. Black or parchment 3 ply in maple. There are no other correct answers.
