    345735E9-29D2-4CCA-AA16-35673E61807C.jpeg I wanted to replace this hideous photo finish tort on my Ibanez Talman 310 because it was a real eyesore. "Why didn't you replace it with real tort?" Because I don't kill endangered species. ;) I got this white pearloid from Pickguard Planet because I missed a bass I had way back in the day that had the same paint/pickguard configuration. Probably not for everyone but I like it. The bass is a deeper metallic flake red than the photo shows.

    I have a red P-Bass that had a black pickguard and I did the white pearloid too. It improved the looks 100%!
    Sweet upgrade!

    Their pickguards are kinda pricey but definitely high quality. They have a ton of the less-common templates on file so you likely won't need to trace yours out and send it to them.

    Billion times better. 6 billion times better. Maybe even 6 and a half.

    "Color 100: White Pearl 4-ply .095"
    It should be noted that it looks much different in person than the photograph.... Better, actually. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
    If you really are talking about that ugly tort, that was the stock one that came with the instrument. It's a photo finish and really detracted from the appearance of the bass.

    I’m looking to put a reddish tort on that mint green. Think it will offset nicely. I saw a couple different ones on PP that looked interesting. One was a red & black (not tort) mix in I think 4 layer. Looks promising.
