    I play lefty, and when I get my new fender standard J-bass I'm curious as to if I will have to buy one specifically left handed or do they have the same colour on both sides? Help me out folks I'm lost.

    yeah you'll have to get one custom made/ordered for lefties, pretty much. From what I've seen of pickguards they don't look so hot on the back and it really just wouldn't work out. The contours on the edges and everything..

    Yep, gotta get 'em made. They're radiused on the edges and wouldn't fit right. Also, the top side is gloss as opposed to a flat, imperfect white.
