    i'm thinking about black pearl on my black bass.


    what is tortis exactly... kinda looks like pearl.


    anyone got any pics of black ernies with diff pickgurads.
     
  4. I have a tortise on my Hotrod.

    You should also look at mirrored guards...they are pretty cool.

    is that a red tortis???

    looks nice.

    what is the diff between tortis and pearl..they kinda look the same in pics to me.
     

  6. I think Fender called it a brown tortise...which in Fenders language means red. :D

    I dont know how to explain the difference...i will try...but im sure someone else will be able to do it better then me. Tortise almost looks like somone took some sort of paint and splashed it on randomly making the design. Pearl is shiny and looks like its made of pearl chips.

    tortis has a shiny finish right?
     
  8. Not really...its a bit glossy...i find it is about as glossy as would be your black pickguard.
