Owners of Black Fender Precision Basses...

  1. Show me your pickguards!

    Contemplating picking up a Fender American Precision Bass from a local store. Its Black with a Rosewood fingerboard. It currently has a white pickguard, but i'm not sure if i'm completely sold on the color. It sounds nice, but i want to get a feel for the whole package.

    So, if you have pictures of your black Precision or have a suggestion for pickguard colors, comment away.

    Can't go wrong with an all black motif.Yes, I know the one they have is rosewood, but it will still look mean.

  3. I personally prefer a white pickguard, but there is something to be said for the all black look of the Roger Waters Precision

    Not completely black, and originally a Fender ('51 RI) P-bass.., but to answer your question - black on black.

    No pic, but I have one exactly like you mention and I put a black pearl guard on it. Nice, real nice.

    I like some contrast. My preferences, in order, would be:
    1. Black body, tort PG, maple neck.
    2. Black body, black PG with white line, maple neck.
    3. Black body, pearl PG, rosewood neck.
    4. A stick in the eye. ;-P

    Here's my 73 P. I have a white original guard put away. I think this early 80s guard looks better.
