    ok, so i'm building a new bass...basically a jazz bass w/ one p-bass pickup.here are my layout choices.

    1. sunburst body, tortoise pickguard, maple board w/ black block inlays (expensive all around, but beautiful.)
    2. black body, black pickguard, maple board w/ black dots. (matches my p-bass which has been my main bass for the last few years.)
    3. black body, white pickguard, rosewood board w/ white dots. (matches the bass i learned on and used as my main bass for years before getting the black p-bass.)

    so vote now.

    I'm with Matt, go for the SB but lose the maple fretboard (and the cheesy black blocks). Get a RW board with pearl dots.
  6. Black with white, maple neck with black block inlays and binding :cool:

    you should consider getting a matching headstock on it or it will have a very weird looking. It will look a little like this beauty
