  1. Hey gang,

    So I'm getting my first fretless soon but I'm stuck on the color. :help:

    Brown Sunburst?

    or

    Arctic White?

    They're both so awesome. :bawl:


    I was thinking about a black pickgaurd if I get the brown sunburst...

    What do you cool cats think?
     
  2. what about a Vintage White with Black PG?
    i play a 'burst with no pick guard, and like it. :cool:

    Either sunburst with a black pg or a red tort pg. White with a red tort would be nice too.
     

  4. The only burst with no pickgaurd I've seen is Jaco's and I lack the fund's for his. :(
     
  5. Now that you mention it, a white with a red/tort pickgaurd would be awesome...

    So many decisions! :(


    Anyone know where to get a red/tort pickguard online?

    The white looks more dressy. The sunburst says blue jeans and t-shirt. So whatever your style is.
     
  8. Yeah, I'm leaning towards white.


    How do you like that Grind bass?

    Don't have it yet. It's in the G.A.S. list, but I'll have it soon. Actually, I've heard a few bad things, so I might save up a little more for something else. But yeah, go for the white. I also back up the red tort pickguard suggestion, but both would look cool.

    White.

    I just don't like plain sunburst for some reason - I need something under it! (Even if its like my SX with a photo quilt or my Agile with a real Spalted top)
     
  11. Yep, going for the white. Now I need to find a red/tort pickguard...

    Nevermind, found one. :hyper:
