White Pickup Covers for a 5-String Jazz Bass ???

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by AREA, Jan 14, 2010.


  1. Hi Guys...

    Any Idea where I can get some. Are they available. For a 4-String no Problem, but I´m searching them for a 5-String... They seem to be hard to find..:bawl:

    Something like that...

    I've been looking for them too... It's kinda shocking with all the different mods available that these aren't easy to find.

    i painted a pickguard using duplicolor paint.
    it turned out nicely.

    Krylon makes spray paint specifically designed to bond to plastic. I have used it for other things. It works pretty well. I would suggest using it over a more traditional spray paint.
     
  6. I think Carvin offers white pups on their new SB J-ish bass (which is now available in a 5'r) . . . maybe they'll sell the covers separate?
     

  7. +1..I painted a pickguard last year with spray paint, after I drove a tone knob through it and repaired it with epoxy…scuff it with 320 grit…paint it…wet sand it with 800 grit and be a happy camper.

    behold...a close-up of the repair

    I think paint is the only reasonable way... Mojotone sells the black covers for $1.50 each.

    The alternative is making molds of the covers, then filling them with liquid plastic of the color of your choice.
    But that's a bit much, if you ask me.

    I gave up looking for 'cream' colored covers that would match an antique-white pearloid pickguard and blocks on the fingerboard . . . finally purchased Krylon for plastic - in "Buttercream" - worked like a charm!

    Yeah, that's kind of what I thought. I was hoping that someone had started making them or found them somewhere online.

    There's got to be SOMEONE that makes these...
    I'm not resorting to Krylon quite yet (though I probably will :roflmao:).
