    I got my Baltic Amber pickguard for my EBMM Sterling 5 H 2008 LE (which is Sequoia Gold) last week. And I got the bass itself back yesterday from being Plek'ed and setup.

    It was already my favorite sounding bass ever. And right up there on favorite looks. Now, it is BEAUTIFUL (to me), and plays as good as it looks. Tone, looks, and playability. This bass is my new trifecta!

    Here's what it looks like now (with crappy lighting and a cell phone camera):

    And with the OEM pickguard:

    I'm not usually a fan of gold hardware but that pickguard really pulls things together. Looks great.

    Excellent choice. Looks like those two were made for each other...

    That looks amazing! I'd love to see a full bass shot - matching headstock?

    Plain headstock.

    I want to take some better pictures, close up and full bass shots, when I have some decent light. So far, today does not look conducive.
