what do you guys think? I currently have black on black.. .if you guys have any pics post them!
Depends on what your into, but I saw a black Fender with a polished diamond plate pickgaurd. Black and Chrome!! Just like a awsome muscle car or a bada** semi truck.
black abalone would be killer too.
you could go the Phil Lynott route and get the mirror pg. hotness.
A tortoise shell pickguard with strong red highlights is a classic on a black bass, of course; but I've actually always preferred the tortoise shell with strong yellow and brown highlights. Gold anodized is cool as well.
Having said that, I must also admit that nemo's pic with the black abalone is pretty spectacular! (I wonder how hard it would be to get matching fretboard dots?)
Black on black's hard to beat IMO, especially with a black/white/black pickguard so you just get the white outline. Very classy. Were it my bass, I don't think I'd mess with it.
I currently have pearloid on black, which looks pretty spiffy.
Most people will say tort, but I don't like tort, it's too flashy for my taste.
id stay with black on black. but if you get a while hair just paint it some crazy color like orange or something
I like mint, especially with rosewood:
or W/B/W with maple:
b/w/b is classic too.
That black abalone is killer. I wonder what the shipping is from Australia to the US.
I like the red tort on a black bass...
I like tort if it is a rosewood neck, black/white/black if it is a maple guard. The white on black looks too plain. I tried tort on mine (maple neck) and ended up taking it off in favour of the black one.
Here's an older bass with rosewood that I no longer have.
3-ply black is what I like best. And not only me - my room mate likes it also:
GOLD, GOLD, GOLD
I'm with Bill; red tort on black with a rosewood board. I don't like maple boards, so I don't really have an opinion there
Yeah, that's a pretty good looking combination.
For all the guys who said "black on black", have you ever seen a clear lucite pickguard on a black bass? That's pretty keen too.
Meh - in that case (with no open body cavities under the lucite) I'd likely prefer no pickguard at all.
Yeah, now that I think about it, I've only every seen the lucite pickguards on basses w/ a metal control plate covering the guts (eg. Jazz Bass). Okay, nevermind.
