Hello fellow TBer's, Just to start, I am not a fan of the relic look and prefer my basses to look nice and new. Obviously they will get dings, scratches and whatnot over time and I'm not worried about that, but I want them to look as good as possible. I just got a 2017 Fender Professional Jazz and I am absolutely loving it. However, somehow the pickguard was very, very scratched up. I don't understand how this happens, I play with a pick and I never touch the pickguard, even when I'm digging in and/or real tired and playing sloppily. My other bass has a more-or-less pristine pickguard after 6 years of gigging. Anyways, I got a replacement pickguard for it, official on the Fender website. They were running a deal on "black sparkle" on Memorial Day weekend for only $15 which was a good price, but it really isn't a deep black color; It has a greenish hue to it. I would like a black pearloid that isn't more grey than black, as it seems most are. I am doing a kinda "opposite" theme with this bass compared to my other one: My jazz is: - Passive - Alnico single coil pickups - Black pickguard - Maple fretboard Compared to my EBMM Sterling which is: - Active - Ceramic humbuckers - White pearloid pickguard - Rosewood fretboard I've looked through some threads here and found a few websites (WD Pickguards, Pickguardian, Greasy Groove, Warmoth, etc.) but all the black pearloids seem to be more grey than black. Have any of you out there had any success with a really dark black pearloid pickguard? Or is the standard Fender black going to be my best bet? Thanks in advance!
