    This is how it would look. I'm kinda on the fence about it, honestly. What do you guys think?

    That's what I'm thinking. It looks naked without it. I guess it just kinda freaks me out to drill 10 holes in my bass! Taking sandpaper and paint to it was hard enough...!

    I think it looks great with the pickguard!

    I like the pick guard, and dislike the fact that your bass can go w/o the pick guard, while my MIM Fender cannot.

    Really like that. I would love to have something like that, only fretted.

    Looks like a nice fit. Where did you get it from? I may be starting a search for a new pickguard for my VM jazz.

    I don't know, I like Jazzes with no pickguards.

    Also, that's a very nuclear color. I like it.

    I asked my fretless and she was like, "Man, I just feel so self-conscious and exposed without it. It is already hard to get through life without frets...it's a wonder I don't develop a complex! Plus, all the Fenders make fun of me for being a Squier. DO IT! DRILL HOLES IN ME!"

    I bought the stupid thing, I might as well slap it on there. :D

    I like it without the pickguard.

    To put it another way, I like the pick guard and will probably throw it on there...but how much of a pain is it to fill in the holes if I change my mind again later?!
