  1. So I got this black Squier P, and I'm having trouble committing to a pickguard color (I really don't like white 'guards). Here's the bass in question-
    1014001552.


    So, I thought I'd stick a poll up and get some opinions.

    If a color you think would work really well isn't listed in the poll, feel free to offer it up.

    If you'll notice, there is no option for tort, so don't bother.

    Also, please refrain from the "whatever you like best is the one you should go with" response. This is just for fun, which is half of what this forum is for, right?

    Oh, and if you vote or put in your two cents, feel free to post photographic examples.

    Thanks, TBers!
     
  2. Sorry, no pics but I love BWB on a black bass!

    Hey the poll is missing ..... nahhh, never mind. ;) (though that actually is my first choice)

    However, out of those I think the anodized gold and the mint would look good and be something different from the more common black or white. FWIW, I have a black Jazz Deluxe with a white pearl pickguard that looks awesome too.
    medium.

    I voted for Black.
    Red can be cool too, for a kind of Coca Cola look.

    I voted black. Red on black is too Pete Wentz. Black on red on the other hand is the shiz. Also, tortoise shell on black is the shiz - but that wasn't an option.

    So I vote black.

    If it was a maple neck, I'd vote for B/W/B. With a rosewood neck, the answer is...TORT!! (I know what you said, but seriously, there is no other option.)
