    Definitely bird's eye. No question.

    Are you going to leave the pickguard natural, or are you going to stain to match the mahogany? Even a slight amber burst over bird's eye would look pretty amazing. :bassist:

    I like the idea of brown tort, too.

    Sweet bass. I'm glad you found that for a good price--I know you love your short scale Dolans. :hyper:

    Birdseye to match the headstock.

    Thanks, everyone. Looks like it's gonna be birdseye (my first thought, too).

    Unfortunately, usually from me! :bawl: This was only the 2nd time (outside of my own "forced" sales) I've ever seen a Dolan for sale. Just have to catch a Dolan owner in dire straights -- he doesn't use dealers or standard models.

    I voted Birdseye, but IMHO ALL fenders and musicmans would look MUCH better without a pick guard.

    I agree, they're my least liked thing about lots of basses.
    Late though, perhaps some mahogany the same colour as the body, with a dark laminate underneath and bevelled edges wouldn't look out of place and be subtle. It's a really nice bass otherwise.

    If you're gonna have a pickguard, Birdseye Definately.
