    I was about to place an order to replace the black pickguard on my bass to a tort one. Then I got this idea:


    Anyone like it?


    P.S. Yes, Paint sucks, and it's worse when I use it.

    Get a black diamond plate instead of slime green, it'll look much better i think.

    You're crazy. But it's also very hypnotic at the same time....
  4. I don't like how the pickguard covers the strings and is all jagged.

    Green with gold would give you that "Bishop Magic Don Juan" pimp look. Ok if you plan on having a stable of "bitches" but not too nice looking on a bass...

    Yeah i kind of agree on cheezewiz for that one.

    To be honest, when i look at that i sort of reminds me of a chauldron filled with green slime( as mentioned in my first post) Dont do it.
    But wait try switch that green with a darker one. It might make it look better?

    Alright, the novelty has already worn off. :D I think my mind is screwing with me or something, but I think I'll stick with the tort, as photoshopped here:


    Now is that red or standard tort?

  11. That would look good on Nickelodeon.

    MUCH better, although on black basses, I'm partial to black pickguards. I love tort on white or burst.

    Yeah it's a tough decision for me. It looks like this now (the gold looks weird in pictures for some reason though):


    Bah I'm no good when it comes to spending money.

    I like the green tort.
  16. I realize Bass Central never updates their website but that looks like they are ready for Holloween!! :eyebrow: :D
  17. I'd rock it. Although the tort/red tort looks just that much better. Get both!

    I would, except that I don't have two hundred dollars. These things are shockingly expensive.
