Hey guys I just got this bass from a guy recently. Annnnd, I'm not diggin the gold pick guard. I've looked at a couple other posts and have found some good sites with pick guards. But with all the variations and different cuts I'm a little confused lol. So if anyone can help me out that would be great! Thanks in advanced. Also, I'm not sure of the year but I know it's Mexican made. I looked up the serial two days ago and remember it being Mexican made. I would put the serial up but I'm not home at the moment but when I get home tonight I will. Again, thanks for the help.
