    sweet...Congrats man....It does look better with the black pick gaurd. :hyper:
  4. man thats nice.. you might wanna change your sig.

    But damn dude.. that bass is beggin for tort!!! :D
  5. i dont think so it looks great with black, man if fender put black pickguards on there basses they would sell so much more.
  6. hey, actually i think your right.
    Maybe i need to see it in person to appreciate it more.

    +1 that many companies would sell more with optional black P/G.

    I usually like ash bodied Fenders to be natural. However, the trans. orange on your new Jazz looks amazing! Especially with the black guard. Can I borrow it for a "little bit?" ;)

    Congrats on the sweet new bass!!

    Looks very nice bro. I prefer the white pickgaurd. I too just joined the MIA Jazz family. I am most happy with my purchase as well. I just wish I would have bought one sooner.

    Have you put any thought into any mods on it? If so, spend the money on the J-Retro pre. It is amazing, and made for that bass.

  19. In every picture I've seen, Transparent Orange looks like a different color in each one. It must change drastically in different lights.
