    Tort with the rosewood fingerboard... if the neck were maple I'd be saying the black.

    No plastic. WOOD! Wood basses. Don't wreck them with plastic.
    IMO

    As a matter of fact I currently have a walnut pickguard I hand made on it right now :smug: Maybe ill try to get a pic up tonight.

    Problem is its hand made lol and I havent the skill to make an excellent one. I am considering getting more walnut or even rosewood and giving it another try.

    Stratocaster?... thats my other project:bag:

    In the pics, the headstock says stratocaster :)

    I think they both look good. Black pearloid would be another option to consider. I'm putting black pearloid on the P I am currently building (pearl white body, Wenge J neck with a Bubinga fingerboard), so I'm kinda biased right now.

    real tortoise alway looks best. but some of the cheap new ones are cheap looking. compared to that i would go black.

    Well tort is definitively not cheap.. I think the price difference is like 35 vs 90 dollars for tort and black....

    Black; just because I like the look of a black p/g on a white p bass; some of my fav players play that particular model...

    on a P-bass, where that little corner of the guard supports the output jack? i'd give it a week before it broke.
    you mean that all-out red, white, blue and black swirl that some fender picks have? i've never seen that on a pickguard! (could be interesting, though)

    I actually broke that area when I was making the pot hole in my walnut guard. Its a side output jack however so not much issue.

    I think everyone loves tort Lol now I need to find someone who won't charge me 100 bucks or more :/

    Thanks for all votes!

    I hate plain plastic, I prefer tortoise, or black or white pearloid. The plain, solid, plastics, just look plastic to me. Yeah, I know, they're all plastic, but some look more plastic than others.

    Black for Rock/Punk
    Red Tort for everything else (red's still classy but with an edge)
