    Just picked up a spitfire pg which is gorgeous! Trying to figure out which of my current basses (if either) it works better for. My wife says neither haha but figured I should asked for some TBass opinions before I shelf this for another project.
    So two options for this sweet Tort guard....sonic blue over sunburst or a real yellowy yellow....pics attached

    Haha fair enough, I actually like the white on both but was curious if I was missing an opportunity

    I vote for leave them both white. But if you feel the need, I would put it on the yellowed finish.

    Did you guys even look at the pics? That sonic blue looks great with the tort.

    I certainly did. My opinion was solicited. I shared it.

    Im definitely looking for honest feedback, had I been looking for support/encouragement that some combo I liked was "ok" I would have indicated it. I appreciate the honest opinions of everyone here.
    I feel like I've got a brand new shirt and my 2 favorite pants and I have no idea if they match!
    Thanks!

    Definitely the blue one. The worn through burst balances nicely with it.

    I think it looks good on both but lean more towards sonic blue.

    The OP also needs a BF-109 pg.

  16. Sonic blue, if you get a neck with a rosewood board. Yellow should stay with white.

    It's really the only reasonable thing to do after buying $150 pickguard.

  20. I like it with the yellow bass. Then when you get a sunburst you can move it and put a black guard on the yellow bass.
