    Want to swap out the black pick guard for something I'll let the TalkBass community decide. While I am fond of a red/black color scheme, I think the tort would look good too. Anyone willing to photoshop what each would look like would be greatly appreciated. Vote up to 10 times. I plan on enlisting Dave's wonderful work at pickguardian.com.

    A slice of three ply brown tortloaf would be perfect.

    I'd do a red tort and split the difference.
     
  4. Literally anything but Tort.
     
  5. I'd go for the white pearly marbly thing. Or the (dark) gray pearl. Or cream.

    I am in the minority of TB and don't love tort. It has it's places, yes.
    I do love black on black, however.
    It's subtle, but how about Black/Red/Black? I did this on my Ibanez when it needed a new guard.
    I know this can be faked on a B/W/B guard with a red Sharpie to try it on for size. A little Naptha then washes the Sharpie away.

    The black abalone they offer would look pretty cool, too.

  15. The black finish of your bass will hide most of the Tortoise Shell detail. If you're deciding between red and tort, then red should be your preferred item.

    I voted red because I'm kind of over this whole tort thing. I will probably change my vote in a couple months.
