So I've finally found one of the old USA SUBs, since I wanted to get one ever since I found out about them, to keep my Ray GAS at bay, and it's on its way to me! It's the neatly named "puke wine red/purple" finish, with the original scratchplate that I doubt I'll wanna keep. So far, 2 looks are rather sharp to me - with a black pickguard and with a white one. I can't really decide, so help me out Grabbed the pics online for comparison purposes. Or maybe you'd prefer the look of some other pickguard on it? I was even contemplating dark grey pearl, but I feel it would clash somewhat because of the textured body finish, so I'd better go with a solid color. Same for the white pearl, except I don't like the look of white pearl on any bass ever (well, 99% of the times, always leave room for doubt ) Of course, there's always a chance I'll love the original guard, but.. I really doubt it.
