    So I've managed to accumulate parts to put a few custom basses together. The one that will most quickly turn into a finished piece is a Fotoflame Jazz that I have the body for, along with multiple pup/pre/neck options for.

    I've pretty much decided on using a rosewood neck with pearl blocks, but can't seem to decide on whether I want a white PG with natural headstock, or go dark style and match a black PG with a black headstock (which is how the neck with block inlays is finished now). Going back to a wood headstock is more work, of course.

    Here are the options, quickly mocked up with a little cut-n-paste work:

    I think the black/black looks more badass, but the white/maple looks like a Fender Select Jazz.

    I guess the person who voted "suggestion" doesn't actually have one? hah

    I have the exact same foto flame jazz body. I have a black pg and maple headstock and it looks great.

    I voted white for a classic look but tort might look cool.

    Yeah, white tort probably ties in well with the inlays, but I don't think it would look so hot against fotoflame.
