What PG for seafoam?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rockinrayduke, Dec 2, 2012.

  1. I have a MIJ Jazz from the early 90's, seafoam. Has a white pickguard. The white pickguard looks bland to me but I can't really think of anything that would look better.

    Doesn't have any routs so the only thing I could think of is taking the PG off which looks nice. What color PG looks good on seafoam green?

    torts look nice, both brown and red. I would check out a cream pearloid, too.

    I've seen tort, pearl, gold, and black, and they all looked good with seafoam. Mint tends to clash and parchment isn't much different than white.
