    The tort is what it looks like now. If you can't tell, its baby blue. I was wondering if you guys thought this is ugly or nice or what? Do you think I should go back to the white???

    Tort blends well with the rosewood board.

    Have you had this bass set up by someone with experience?

    The saddles are the opposite of every bass I've every owned.

    Take a picture of the back of the bridge so we can see the string ends.

    I vote tort as well.

    Seems pretty normal to me, compared to my basses anyway.

    Oh, and I vote neither.

    White Pearloid would make that blue POP.

    Just personal taste - I don't like red tort on any blue bass.

    I'm much more a fan of black or white pearloid.

    White pearl or white with a black rim get my vote.
