    Hey bass people!

    I’m looking to change out the Pickguard on my Stingray Special 4H in dropped copper with a roasted maple neck. The white that came on the bass just isn’t my jam.

    Your thoughts are appreciated!

  3. Black/white/black. Simple and elegant. Matches the pickups and the dots on the neck.

    Yeah, I thought so too. I hadn’t really thought of going that way until I saw it.

    Aged white pearloid and it isn't even close

    Yes, my initial inclination was black or black pearl. I do, however, also have a 2008 Stingray in black cherry burst (with a black guard) so it got me thinking of perhaps going in a different direction with this one. I’m not sure though......hence the poll!

    It looks much better than one would think.
    Dare to be different!

    Thought I’d resurrect this thread because I’ve got a Dropped Copper Stingray Special 4HH next week.

    I’d like to see more options but so far, I’m liking black copper sparkle. I voted other.

    What I’d REALLY like to see is a pickguard painted the solid color of the bass. Anyone know where I can get one made?

    You're welcome.
    I'm waiting on a custom pickguard from Quickguards.
    Should be shipped this week.
