    I usually can't stand that kind of pickguard, but I must admit, that bass looks cool.

    67 lefty P bass bought new in 72. It's been thru over 40 years of carefully applied relic work. Many hours were spent
    in smokey bars, greasy dives, and basements and
    warehouses to apply the authentic "road worn" patina!

    Very nice I like the roadworn but only of the sound and feel the relic'd thing isn't my cup of tea

    This is 90% bedroom/casual jam wear, with a few gigs, but it took me 34 years to achieve it.
