    I would like some pictures of what different color pickguards look like on a tobacco burst/sunburst p-bass. Well I suppose it doesn't have to be a p-bass, but you get the idea. I did a search, and while there were plenty of topics, all the pictures were gone.
     
  2. Smash's tort is pretty red, maybe red tortoise? Mine is darker.
     
  3. These aren't mine: Here's a tortoise, gold anodized, and black.

    Cool, thanks guys. Right now I'm thinking the tort looks the best. We'll see what happens.

    (I just thought of a dumb question, why do many people have a thumbrest on the lower part of the body?)

    I asked the SAME question last week. It's cause back in the day it was like a finger rest. You put ur fingers there and play with your thumb. (Bad explanation but meh, I tried:p)
