    I'm planning on getting a LowEnd PJ and trying to figure if I want pearl block inlays or dot inlays.
    Which one do you guys think will look better?

    Dots. Blocks belong on a jazz bass.

    I would like to pick up a black pickguard for it so it will match the head stock like this......

    NEITHER!! :bag:

    Seriously though…for me, it would depend on the color of the body and pickguard, as well as the fretboard wood. It's all about the flow of shape and color. Personally, I think blocks look best matched up with Jazz and Jaguar bodies. So with that in mind, what colors are you looking put together?

    Tell you what, I've done a bit of photo-shoppery for others here recently. Here's where they were posted. Want me to crank out a mock-up or two to show everyone?

    I recently built a pbass using an AllParts blocked and bound Jazz neck. The body is Warmoth Alder P body painted with Lake Placid Blue Laquer. With the Pearl white blocks on the neck I used a pearl white guard to tie it together with white pup covers. I think it looks great.

    My bass will a relic'ed black with black pickguard. The thought of just doing clay dots has crossed my mind also.

    Exactly true, either one would work. Pay no attention to those who say blocks belong only on a Jazz, they have no imagination.
