    Check it out, the bass should be complete in mid to late September.Now i have to decide what color hardware, standard or vintage style and if i go vintage style if a pearliod pickguard would work.

    um, yeah.......so you said I should be able to borrow that by September? Great!

    Black hardware and pearliod pickguard might look nice.

    Isn't it the law that on a green bass like that you have to use gold hardware? Course I would break the law and go with black. Beautiful looking so far btw!

    Screw it. Skip the pickguard.......that bass is too beautiful to cover up.

    Don't cover the top.

    Black Hardware gets my vote as well. Doesn't look as much like a cheap rap video prop as gold would.

    Yeah i am seriously considering that.

    Standard Style with black hardware.

    Putting a pg on that georgous quilt top would be a mortal sin. :)

    I'd get a clear pickguard... and have it tinted green, but like 10%. No lie, I saw this done on a guitar, and it kicked ass.
    Hardware I'd do pweter (sp?), just cos I like it. If not, then black.

  12. She's a beauty Major!! I wouldn't cover it either though.......Keep it nekkid and black hardware is my vote.....

    I'm not a fan of black hardware, but that body is screamin' for it.
  18. black hardware will match the burst nicely.

    Forget a pickguard, ESPECIALLY a perloid...not on a quilt...quilt would require a solid colour, else it would be like doing plaid and stripes (YIK).

    Now the all-important question...fretboard...maple?...ebony?...what?

    That green quilt would look KILLER with a maple board, but of course, there's much more to consider than just the looks with a fretboard.
  19. I'm going with the majority. Don't hide it! No pg, or at the very most, I sort of liked the idea of a slightly green tinted clear pg. That's a gorgeous piece of guitar, there! I bet you're :hyper: :hyper: !

    I say half pickguard would look cool and accent the sweet top. maybe black pearloid... and I guess black hardware, but I'm not too sure.
