So I picked up a used Cort P bass a few weeks back for $40. I love the bass. Plays great, sounds better... whatever... blah blah. Anyway, I hate white pickguards and I didn't have anything else laying around. It was a slow Saturday morning so why not? Funds are low currently, so I figured I'd make my own tort guard with Bic permanent markers. I started with the white original guard, sanded it with 220 grit and a tan marker. Other white guard for reference. Next, orange. Then red. Then light brown. Then dark brown. Does it look great? Not really. But it beats white in my opinion. 15 minutes well spent.
