    I have an Inca Gold Gamma jazz bass with a white pick guard that I am thinking about painting either surf or sea foam green. Before I make an irreversible change to this bass, I thought I should try a different pick guard to see if that might make me ok with the gold color. Asking for pics of gold basses with different color pick guards so I can see what colors might work. I'll post a picture of mine as soon as I figure out how.

    This pic is from the classified ad where I got the bass. I have since refinished the headstock to a natural finish, the gold on the headstock wasn't even close to the color of the body.

    This is the image of the new headstock finish. The name comes from what was originally written on the back of the headstock by Joe Milstein when he made it. Joe made for TB member Moe, and had written Moe-Joe on the back. I decided to name the bass after that and custom painted it behind the Gamma decal Joe sent me. I think it came out pretty good myself.

    I love gold basses! My next build will be another medium-scale P in Shoreline Gold (satin or gloss? Hmm...) with a tort pick guard, like this (only better, because I'm going to splurge on Spitfire tort):

    All three of my Music Man's are gold, though not exactly the gold color of your bass.

  13. Maybe the accessory you're looking for isn't a pickguard. I'm thinking a gold lamé suit or gold lamé harem pants.

    I would try to find a black with gold pearloid figuring pickguard. Then you could run a line through the J in MoJo changing it to MoFo special:D
