    So I have an 08' American Standard in Charcoal Frost w/Maple neck....very nice:D, BUT I want to change the pickguard. Has anyone done this and have pics to show the different options?
    I do not want to put a pearl or black not knowing what it will look like first.

  2. Get someone with Photoshop to do it - there's a thread out there that does it - do a search on "Photoshop my bass."

  5. Hmm. I quite like it with a white PG. The only that could possible be better is... white pearl.

    Black pearl would be nice; I think a deep burgundy would be classiest.

    Either black or white pearl, if it were mine. Nice color, btw.

    Thank-you. I do miss my former 3-Tone Burst, but I wanted one that is Classy and showed it was an 08'. Plus a previous add in Bass Player helped my decision....;)

    :hyper: That is perfect, Thank-you!!!!!!!!!:hyper:
  16. You're very welcome. Btw, I tried it with other things (Black, Tort, Abalone, Red Pearl, Blue..etc.), but IMO, these looked the best. Black really made it look dull.

    Nice work! I vote for pearloid #1! (btw, I've got a P-Bass in the same finish, and now you've got me going you fiend!)
