    Hi guys just wondering if this would work on a bass or if it would mess it up....I was thinking of getting a diamond plate aluminum pick guard on my Fernandes Jazz model bass(which i can`t see casing a problem) but then i though....hmmm what if i`d make me some pickup covers in diamond plate too!!!! would this cause a problem??? cause if not i`m going for it!!!
     
  2. The trouble is finding a material with the diamonds in "scale" to the instrument. Usually these patterns and components to the patterns are too large for the small areas they cover on an instrument.

    It would definitely mess it up IMO.
