Pics pls: black bodies with not-white scratchplates

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Zerozeddy, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. I hate the stock red, black and white bodies with white scratchplates, makes them look cheap IMNVHO (although they might well be in most cases).

    I can think of funky alternatives for red and white, but not black.

    Examples please :)

    Oo, and if anyone has pics of basses/g**t*rs of any colour but with green pearloid scratchies (not mint), please post them too.

    I'm liking either black on black with a white outline (BWB pickguard), or White pearloid. I'm sure there are many more crazy colors/patterns if you're looking for crazy.

    cool color combo on your strat!
    I'm a big fan of Black / Black and Black /Brown tort...
  9. That Jazz with tort plate THE shiniest guitar I've ever seen. Full marks. Making me rethink my project plan. Hmm.
