Pretty much it....
Shell pink bass needs a rosewood fingerboard and a maple neck.
Maple! And we better be seeing some pics when you get the bass.
Rosewood fret board! Maybe a tort guard??
Birds eye maple. Or if you can get clay dots, rosewood.
Really, I think tort would look terrible on that color.
I say maple board, pearl pg
always maple, no matter the body color.
I am doing a telecaster in shell pink with a rosewood fretboard and matching pink headstock. going to have an aged white pickguard too. i love maple boards but because I have a matching headstock, the color contrast is greater if I use rosewood. just my two cents
Maple board and a white pearl guard.
Got to be Rosewood.
and I am a huge Maple fan.
Either would be fine. Preferably a maple fretboard with a pearloid white pickguard. Again, either is fine. Mine has a rosewood fretboard on it... only because someone bought a MIM Fender P-Special neck w/maple fretboard before I could.
Mine has a birseye maple neck and fretboard along with a pearloid white pickguard. Best look there is for Shell Pink in my opinion.
Well here's my shell pink 62 Jazz w/ Rosewood and Clay dots
As well as what it'll look like with a tort guard.
Then you need to get Mungibunga to post a pick of his, he has a gorgeous Lakland with maple neck and pearl blocks & guard.
Personally I think both look great and really you can't go wrong.
Really? Who asked you?? I hope your bass playing is more creative than your sense of visuals..
I have got to agree with Hopkins. Tort will most likely be overkill.
