    The black is safe. The gold swirl is stylish. The black pearl tries to be both, and fails. I voted gold because it looks really sweet there, but I also "get it" why somebody would take the more stealth approach with the Bongo.

    I like the black pick guard, but the bass behind it is shaped funny. :/

    LOL
     
  10. I say black pearl. Black pearl just looks so good on a black bass, especially when you have a Rosewood board.

    I don't know why, but the gold looks really out of place and weird to me.

    Black looks great, but the white stripe throws me off. If it were a one ply solid black, i would say go for it.

    before you ask about the pick guard you should have asked about the bass itself first i mean come on a bongo?

  16. Black pearl. This coming from a confirmed Bongo-hater, although I used to feel the same way about girls...

    Befor I saw the actual pickguards, I was leaning towards gold swirl. After seeing them, the gold swirl looks like pubes on a gold guard to me. Call me old fashioned, but I think white would look best.
