    What is your favorite color scheme for a P-Bass??
    PLease include the body finish, type of neck, and pick guard. The string for the Jazz was interesting, so now a P-bass. Thanks in advance:D

    I just ordered a Candy Apple Red body, Maple Neck, and White Pearloid pick guard. Lakland Bob Glaub Signature to be exact. :cool: Can't wait, should be around September.

    Maple board, ash body in natural finish, black pickguard.

    [It's also my ideal Stingray color scheme!]

    White blonde, maple board with one of those gold, metal pickguards, it's called alinco, or something like that.
    Man, I need a cold shower just thinking about it!

    that reflective blue color, i cant remeber what fender calls it, EB/MM calls is pearl blue, and gibson calls it pelham blue, but that color, maple neck and pearl pickguard, with the bridge covers on. So similiar to the steve harris one with the covers and a different pickguard i guess.

    Most favourite - vintage white, tortoise pickguard, rosewood fingerboard
    Second place - sunburst, tortoise pickguard, rosewood fingerboard
    Third place - Butterscotch Blonde, black pickguard, maple fingerboard

    I guess these are pretty classic choices... I just like stuff that looks vintage. Even if it's not.

    Black, with matte dark blue PG, matched black headstock, and rosewood board.
    (see (NSFW link removed) their bass player uses one)

  19. Wow, I love these color-threads! ;)

    Anyway, surf green together with a white pickguard and a maple neck is EXTREMELY (IMO, of course) nice. Black, gold anodized guard and maple neck is another option; and so is sunburst with tortoiseshell and rosewood!
