Need some pickgaurd help.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Nephilymbass, Mar 17, 2019.

  1. So I have a sunburst fender jazz with Pau Ferro board I want to change the pickgaurd. Been looking for pictures of this bass with different pickgaurds. I want to go with something outside the usual suspects (Tort, Black, and white.) searched talkbass and google images already. All the threads I found on TB were about the “usual suspects”

    Upload a pic of your bass and I'll bet some folks can photoshop some pickguard on there for you. I say that of course not having a copy of photoshop installed at present myself...

    Fender now let’s you virtually assemble a bass on their website but again the options are limited. You can try there first.

    nice bass!

    and i did find a copy of photoshop, it's just not installed...
    if you can get a 100% straight shot (this is angled some) that would help.

    also i just realized most of the pickguard pictures i found are 1) 4 string and 2) not on a bass so there's no strings. maybe it was a hairbrained idea on my part. :confused:

    Hahaha. I usually respond with strange color suggestions when these pickguard opinion threads pop up. Who knows, maybe someone wants to try a unique look. ;)

    When in doubt, go with mint.

    I bet the white will grow on you, especially if it yellows....

    Black also would look killer lol.

    Ok, you want unique. I made an aluminum pickguard with the help of a friend and painted it in blue “anodizing “ paint which has nothing to do with anodizing. IMO looks killer.

    I like pearl, but vintage or cream pearl looks warmer.

    I had a sunburst Jazz a while back. I played around with some goofy PGs. Ultimately settled on black (BWB 3 ply). IMO it looks best. Creme / off white is the runner up. Not a tort fan.
