    Help me choose a pick guard for my Lakland. Please vote in the poll above. It's also getting a matching headstock. Bass color is Lakland's Shoreline Gold. MarkusBass did the designs for the 3 pickguards.

  5. i actually like #3.
    just curious, where can you get a pickguard that shape?
    it looks similar to a pickguard from another bass i know.
  6. I'd say to leave it alone, but of the three 'guards, I like the third best.

    I actually like #1. Kind of a more modern throw-back.

    #1 for me, I like the idea of a P bass guard on something different.

    Congrats on grabbing that, BTW. I played it when John picked it up, it's killer.

    I chose #2.

    When I look at the bass in pic #1, the pickguard is the first thing I notice instead of the whole bass. #3 looks like maybe it was made for a different bass since the lower horn part is missing.

    #2 just looks the most "balanced" to me .... it adds to the look of the bass without calling too much attention to itself.

    Regardless, the white pearloid on that yellow finish is VERY classy!

    I'd have to say I'm somewhere between 2 and 3... with the guard overlapping the bridge pickup a bit more than either of those do. Like this...
