    What's your best looking p bass (body color, pick guard, fingerboard wood combination?)
    Post pics!

  2. Personally I prefer the 57-59:

  3. I've got a serious jones for a J or P in black, black guard, rosewood.

    I also like greens from seafoam to sherwood, with matching headstocks, mint or white guards, and rosewood.

    The old gold guard looks great on white with rosewood, maple headstock.

    Bursts and tort are on the bottom of my list.

  4. Black - black - maple
    White - anodized gold - maple
    White - tort - maple

    These are my current combos, I guess I'm pretty much a traditionalist. If I was picking a new colour now, this Daphne Blue & roasted maple has definitely caught my eye.

    This now fulfills all my P bass tone requirements...and I like the aesthetic, quadruple black and ebony.

    The top one is my favourite looking Precision but the other two also float my boat colour wise. The CAR one may end up with a maple fretboard down the road.

    Same, to my eye it's hard to beat the burst, mint, maple combination:

    With that being said, light blue, off-white, and maple would be my second choice:

    Any Precision bass with blocks instead of dots is a great look for me.
  13. The translucent blue is gorgeous!

    Here's mine:

    If I didn't go for the honeyburst, my next favourite pick is natural gloss / black pickguard / rosewood fingerboard.

    Too many to name for me. I guess my top 3 would be sunburst/tort/rosewood, fiesta red/tort/rosewood, and 2 tone burst/gold/maple.

    Recently scored a roasted maple P-neck, so I'll be taking some nice tips from this topic. :)

    Either walnut or wine, black pickguard and maple board. Probably Paul Jackson's fault :bassist:

    Roasted Ash gets me every time. Have a PJ in a natural finish because it's the easiest way to get a matching headstock.
