    I really just swapped pickguards. I like it, but I think I'm going to put a tort one on instead. Oh well, at least it isn't as boring as before!

    The new pickguard is a little big for some reason as you can tell....and it's an actual Fender one, so maybe they'll just let me trade for the tort... hmmmm

    I like it though...looks very 80's (in the good way :smug: )

  2. You have very 80's hair for a very 80's colour of bass.

    That's a gorgeous bass. I like it with either pickguard.

    You should change the pickups too... on my MIM bass, the pickups didn't sound very defined or full. A pickup change will make that bass amazing :D

    Very cool! I think it is a big improvement over the white pickguard. :)

    Maybe a chrome one would suit the finish. I like black better than white, though. Good move.

    Squeeze it in there and eventually it will be forced to fit ;)

    Or you can just sand/file off the areas which are too big.

    What is it with Tort PG's? I think those are the ugliest PG's in the known universe! I like solid colors and I think it makes the bass stand out more! Torts ugly them up, IMO!

    Nice bass!

    Good Choice on the Black Pickguard...sorry to say but I'm not a big fan of tort..Unless it's on an Oly White bass.
     
  18. That looks excellent, stick with the black. Very nice.
