    Hey guys I have this bass that's just amazing. I love it. But I would love to have a custom pickup guard. Specifically a abalone pick up guard and trust. To make my bass look amazing. Since carvin does not want to do this for me I am reaching out to Luther's to see who can pull this off. Please tag yourself or if you know someone who does high quality work tag them . Much appreciated.

    The mirror pickguard was around $40 and pearloid $30 if my memory serves me well.

    Here is the mirror pgd in action.

    I don't know if I have ever seen faux abalone pick guards.

    WDMusic.com is 0 for 1 with me regarding pickguards - they screwed up a PG for a Fender American Standard Jazz(in abalone), then were absolute pricks during the return process...

    Here's a couple pics of their work:




    Here's what I ended up with from another company, no thanks to WD Music:

    What is the other company you used ? It looks like better work. And it would help the OP to know.
