  1. I've recently received my 1977 Ibanez Silver Series that I bought on eBay. I love how this thing plays, and how it sounds through my Mark IV, not a huge fan of the white pickguard. I'm probably going to add a bridge cover(no pickup cover), a black thumbrest, and a couple toggle switches(on the control plate). Everything else stays the same.

    Help me decide a new color. Thinking of either clear, black of some kind(gloss, matte, or pearl), or maybe a custom vinyl job like the one pictured. But I pulled the white guard and found no ugly routes underneath and I kinda like the look. I'd probably get/make a clear guard so it looks a little more finished.





    Nevermind the dog, she has to be a part of everything. Thanks,

    As much as I dislike mother of toilet seat, the grey one looks pretty good against the wood. So I voted black pearloid.

    Also no PG looks pretty good.

    Nothing like a loving weimeraner to always want to be involved with everything.

  5. I'm currently leaning either towards a black, or clear(I think it would help cover up some of the finish chips around the screw holes). Here's one with a bridge cover and black guard.


    You ain't kidding. She is always extremely interested in whatever is taking attention away from her! She always tries to "help" me fix guitars... :roflmao:

    THIS. 3-ply BWB looks great on basses with darker bodies with maple necks.

    With black looks a lot like the first bass I bought. I ditched the ashtray immediately.
