Jazz basses with white/cream pickup covers

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by yellofury, Apr 26, 2010.

  1. Well once again Im contemplating changing the look of my Fender Jazz

    I was thinking of adding white pup covers and white MXR style knobs and possibly a black control plate

    I started off with a white pearl pickguard
    and then changed up to gloss black:
    and then to black pearl:

    Does anyone here have pictures of their Jazz basses with white pickup covers and/or white knobs??
    I know Selowitch has a sweet blue one I think with this mod
  2. doh
  3. never liked white pup covers . . . just my 2¢

    Tort would look nice with that rosewood neck.

    Creme would look nice on your pbass w/ the maple neck.

    Just stumbled upon this in another thread...

  6. uhhhhhh I appreciate the comments
    but I need pics of jazz with the white plastic pickup housing
    like Dimarzios

    I dont own the P bass anymore
    and I did at one time have tort on it
    but I couldnt stand it because to me it made my bass look kinda cheap

    How about this: Its my 2004 lefty MIM jazz with Dimarzio Model J's. I had the pickguard made from a 40 year old piece of red torte and the BadassII bridge was also a big improvement. I had the frets removed and filled in with rosewood fretlines. She plays like a dream and the cream pickup coverswork really well in my opinion.

    I've never seen a bas with white pickup covers that I liked. A matter of taste, I guess...

    I manufacture for several companies including but not limited to: Bridge City Sound, Catalinbread, more.
  13. I really like the look of cream or white pickups on Fenders. Or on any instrument for that matter. They give them a classier, dressier look. I've never liked black or graphite colored pickups. I prefer chrome, gold, or white/cream.
  14. the white/cream covers have such a cool vibe on jazz basses. I would love to find some 5 string covers for my 08 Jazz.....I know Reverend used them but haven't seen any other company besides Delano that makes them.

    cool stuff!
