    I want to get some ideas for putting a new pg on my black P bass.

    I want to do something different from the same old stuff.

    So let's see some pics of exotic pickguards!

    Here's a couple that I find interesting!

  2. Not quite exotic...and not a P-Bass, but I'm kinda partial to this one. Testers model paint and spare time.

    I've been playing with the idea of cutting out a clear plexiglass pickguard for a custom build I'm doing in my spare time. I think it would look neat showing the guts of the bass, maybe even wire in a little LED to give it a glowing effect.

    Thanks, my buddy took the original pickguard and used it as a template on Plexiglass. He is a great designer/builder/luthier.
     
  14. Here's one I did for my old SBV. All it required was about an hour of CAD and a few minutes on the CNC mill :)

    Came across this Brubaker on eBay tonight. Question is can you really call it a pick-guard? I can't make up my mind with about this one! It's either really cool or really crazy!

    I like this one much better over the other 2

    With my Stingray (I know it's not a J...but you get the idea), I went with Abalone over the Natural Ash. Kind of a departure from the standard white or black perloid.
