    yea. mine would look sooo cool without a pickguard, but it can't happen. i wonder if i could make a custom pickguard just to cover the channel, and have it be like just white.....hmmm.....

    I think blue pearloid would look pretty cool.

    you should do some kinda green. i voted for toirtuse cause i thought it was green like a turtle . fender has a nice emerald green for their stratocaster check and see if there is a jazz model just a suggestion you asked for my input.
     
  9. haha, my Essex doesn't have that... and I probably paid less then half of what you did.

    anyway, on the topic:

    I would go with the tortoise shell as well. A classic look on white. Either that or black pearloid.

    I've gone with white pearloid on white, but I think it depends on the color of the bass IMHO. Some body colors look better with white pearloid while others look better with tortoise shell.

    i like my basses clean.....no pickguard, i think it looks too much like a guitar, and ruins the look, but that's just me.

    believe me, thats my plan. but fender is lazy and there are channels and a hole for holding the bass while finishing. therefore i cant take it off.....i really really want to get the same color body over the same wood from warmoth, then keep the fender body and start a ebay vintage parts bass on that....but first id need the warmoth body, and that would cost me $330. I have about $40. what do i do?
     
  19. Where can you get the pickguards? I want the white pearl!
