    No way. Black Pearl owns you all. The picture does not do it justice. That was a quick snap. I'll take it outside this weekend and snap some pics. But its a 2004 MIM. I've wanted this combo for a P-bass for like two years, then when I found out Guitar Center had these limited editions, I jumped on it.

    has anyone ever thought of gettin a bare ash body[yours is lovely!!]
    and mixing food colouring with lacquer and giving it 3 coats

    then sand down and recoat a few times and sand between each coat
    im thinking baby blue of dark blue on a jazz!

    that would be sweet
     
  7. Yeah, I vote for a plain black pickguard.

    nice bass, but that pickguard induces vomiting...maybe that's what you're going for.

    I think it'd probably look good in person... pics usually don't do stuff justice I find.

    No, that green pg still looks way better than that black/white disaster. Check out woodchuck loc'in' out on his front lawn with the dickies on! ;)

    That's a nice one Xcental43X. You know I love my P's. I'll post some pics of my Skyline Glaub as soon as I get it. I'm glad to see more and more people getting bitten by the P bug.

    ...IMHO...

    I'd personally go black or tort on that pretty little P... if it were mine, prolly tort. :)
