    I'm thinking of buying one for my jazz but only if its would match the chrome at the control knobs well and I really can't tell from their sample pics if it would, does anyone own one?
     
  2. Many people have bought some, including Nino Brown. He had a really nice Geddy Lee jazz, IIRC, which he equipped with a mirror pickguard. They look pretty nice, seem to match the chrome pretty well.
     
  3. I never bought one from them, but I did one time buy a G&L Legacy in red metallic sparkle with a mirrored pickguard. It was a great guitar and got almost as many comments as my pink Strat does today.

    Ive got one for my 5 String SX Jazz, havent installed it yet but it does match the chrome. I highly suggest getting one, they are sharp lookin (seen one on one of Nino's basses, check out the pic with all his basses).

    I've thought about it, but aren't they fingerprint magnets?
     
  6. I can't afford to... $45 for a hunk of plastic?? No thanks.

  7. I got one for my Bongo from dazbootman. He sells P/Gs on Ebay but if you contact him, he can make any kind you need. The one he made for me is absolutely fabulous. :bassist:

    Maybe this will give you an impression. Pretty good match, though the chrome is a little more blue-ish.

    I once made one out of mirrored stainless, it made the bass heavy and did something funny to the sound.

    I don't use pickguards except for on my Modj. But imo, it seems a little to showy, but then again what do I know, my bass is sparkle black...
