    As the thread title says, I've been looking for a red tort PG for my Am Std P-Bass. It has 13 screw holes. Doesn't matter to me if it has the thumb rest and pick up cover screw holes or not. Everywhere I look they seem to be running around eighty bucks. Are they that expensive everywhere or is there somewhere I can find one for less cash?

    I want a quality one, so if I have to pay that much I will. Just thought I'd ask ya'll before I pull the trigger.

    Thanks

    Yeah and my air conditioner won't cool my house below 74 degrees! What's next the convenience store running out of Blue Cherry Slurpees? Ugh, my life sucks!:smug:

    Now do you have a real answer to my question?

    Safety Tip #37b...You might have better luck getting a decent answer if you post it in the appropriate section of TB. OT is for non-gear/music related topics (hence the random and un-related responses).

    Yes. This is a trick question, as cherry slurpees only come in Red or White. Blue is Raspberry.

    My bad! I guess I should have known that the supporting member posse would rather be smart arses than help a brother out.

    So much for asking the community a honest question.

    Not gonna rage quit. I just think the supporting members can be rather snotty and trollish at times. So I offer the following:

    Oh Supporting Members, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to post in the wrong area and failing to observe the rules, I have sinned against you whom I should idolize above all things. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

    :D

    I love the reason for your edit. You're a cool guy ransombass. :D

    Did you try Warmoth for that pg? It looks like it's $50?

    No, but really. You gotta post in the right section. It's da rules. My prediction is that this thread will be moved in 3....2....1....

    allparts.com have one for $65, but they don't seem much cheaper anywhere else.

    I tried ebay. I'll look again. I probably just looked in the wrong area.

    Haha...get it? Looked in the wrong area!

    These are the jokes, people.:D

    Now now, its naught to do with supporting members... you asked a bass related question in the Off Topic (unbass-related) forum.
    I dont think any of us in here even play the bass. We're bass fisherman.

    Nah, nonsupporting members can be just as crude.
    I just happen to know nothing of pickguard costs, so Id really be of no help.
    If you want serious answers try the other forums. If you need to relieve some stress or get a good laugh, visit us Off Topic guys.

    I was going to say 'Welcome to Talkbass', but youve been here 4 years already.

    Did you really have no idea what went down in Off Topic?

    Id say your question is probably bestt suited to be answered by the guys who hang out in either 'Hardware & Setup' or 'Pickups'.

    The "Basses" section would be a good bet, too.
