    Hey guys...I'm thinking if pulling the trigger on a Fender Sting signature Precision. I like the look of it except for the bright white pickguard. I have looked at pics of replacement guards in black or tortoise shell and those don't do it for me either. I don't really mind the white but it's just so white compared to everything else on the bass. Does anyone know of a way to dull or fade the white a little. I've read elsewhere that maybe leaving it in the sun can give it a slightly yellowed (antiqued) look. Has anyone done that?

    I think the yellowing of white pick guards is caused mostly by 20 year of exposure to oil from your hands, smoky bars, beer, and that type of thing. Although the sun might work.

    Check out Warmoth. They might have some options you like.

    Weird as it may seem, I have a '56 Precision, and the original guard is still very white. Didn't yellow much, if any, over the years.
