What colored pickguard goes with tobacco burst?
If the burst has black edge, I like a black pickguard. If the burst has a brown edge, I would go with tort.
Anodized gold, black bakelite, mint, creme...
Parchment... rolling parchment...
I like the invisible kind.
Mauve or periwinkle
I have aged white on mine. Not particularly impressive imo, but it's been on since at least the early 80's when I bought it and had it refinished ('64...ikr)
I like tort on a darker burst, and black on a lighter one. Just my preferences, but you asked, so I answered.
Tort on a darker burst
Black on a lighter burst...
Yours are really nice. I'm not sure if mine will be dark or light.
Depends on the burst and the fretboard wood.
Lol, not just black... Black BAKELITE. We can harvest some from the interior of Dad's Stude'!
Thank you so much! They are both great playing and sounding jazzes. I'm going through a pbass phase right now so they don't get played much, but they will go back into rotation soon enough.
Bakelight is the pre runner of modern plastics. It's really neat stuff and looks great for a vintage feel and look.
Yes, I know... Hence the Studebaker reference.
Brandy goes well with tobacco.
Lol I figured you did with that remark as well.
I keep forgetting most of the bassists here are at least as old as that car and know what the stuff is already.
Matte black or ano gold.
Black or really dark red tortoise shell, like a '70s Gibson Ripper drool
