    hello everyone. i recently bought a really nice fender jazz bass. its a standard model. it came with that standard white pickguard and i decided that i want to change it. i have decided that im either going to buy a tortoise shell pickguard or a red pearl one. i dont know which one to pick and i was wondering if you all could help me by leaving some advise or opinions. thanks alot.

    Tortoise Shell is always a winner, but you can try black pearl also.

    Tortise on a black jazz is nice, or a white pearloid or mirror pickguard a la Nino Brown.

    Tort and black are the only pickguards I like on any bass (except maybe mirror). I think white and "mint green" are too boring and a lot of pearl/mother of toilet seat, etc just look weird to me.
