Jazz with Tort?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by page, Aug 1, 2005.


  1. How would a Wine Red Fender Jazz with a tort pickguard look? Or hows about a Geddy Lee with Tort? Id like to get a Geddy Lee and put Tort on it , but im afraid that the maple neck might not look good with tort. Pics of either of these is welcome, thanks guys .

    Geddy Lee with tort IMO doesnt look too good. I saw one in the new Alkaline trio Video. To me it looks funny with the maple and the blocks. A midnight wine fender might look good with tort, especially with a rosewood board. Just my 2 cents
     
  3. white or black pearl would look better on either of those two combos, in my opinion.

    Wine red I say go black. Geddy should stay white.

    Neither look good with tort IMO.

    Black would look best on the wine red. White pearloid with the Geddy. White and black is just too good a combination.

    Sunburst and white pg though . . . . bleh.
