    Has the title states - does anyone have images of a natural body bass with a solid red pickguard? Preferably rosewood neck.

    It’s a free country. You can paint your house whatever color you want.

    Never seen that combo. Unusual, but I kinda like it.

    I was prepared to really hate this idea, and I'm surprised at how much I like it.

    Just trying to go for something that isn't common but would still look good.



    The second one, imagine the guard more solid in colour. Hard to find any images hence the thread!
  11. Not bad. Whatever floats yourboat.

    I like the red pearl, that's sharp.

    Looks wrong ! Natural basses don't need pickguards at all.

    It's not my absolute favorite combination, but it's far from the worst I've ever seen. I takes all kinds, and if it catches your eye, have at it and ignore my opinion. You're the one who has to live with it.

    I was once asked by a drummer to go with him when he was buying a drum set. OK, I can do that, but why do you want me along? Turns out he was color blind, and wanted someone who wasn't to tell him it looked OK.

    This is to saabfender you cannot paint your house whatever color you want if it affects your neighbor's property values. And some towns actually have a list of colors you are allowed to paint your house and your window shutters!

    Other than that I like the natural w/red pick guard, very nice
