    I am trying to decide on a pick guard color for a red bass. I was going to go with red bass, white pick ups and a blue pick guard of some sort. But I'm still undecided.
    So lets see some red basses...please

    I had a red jazz bass with a red pearl pickguard several years ago that I thought looked great. I wish I'd saved some pictures of it.

    The guitar player in my band has 2 red teles with plaid pickguards.

    The Jazz Bass came with a black pick guard that I changed to white pearl.
