I just recently purchased a black pg for my sunburst sx p-bass, but when I took off the white pg, I decided that I kinda liked what the pg had been covering. I also discovered that the black pg would require modification to install. The problems with leaving the pg off are the fact that I still need to cover the control cavity, and the huge routing around the pickups. I could just make a small cover for the contorl cavity and just ignore the routing around the pups. I also came up with a teardrop type shape for the pg, but I'm not sure if it would look good at all, so help me decide! Also, I would be able to fill the screw holes that are in the black area of the finish pretty easily if i decided not to go with a standard pg.
