    Hi all. Recently I aquired an old Electra Phoenix Bass, and I decided to redo it. I put a Basslines Quarter Pound pickup, new pots, capacitors, wires, a new jack, etc. It's turning out to sound pretty good, at a pretty cheap price (got the bass for free).

    Anyways, I'm planning on adding a pickguard to it. My question is which style of P-bass pickguard would this take? I'm leaning toward the American Standard style, but I just dont know... any suggestions or criticism of my work is always welcome :)

    you know you could make a custom pickguard... that would be pretty sweet if you can come up with a cool design, you can probably do that on www.warmoth.com . I don't think a normal fender pickguard would fit on that bass either.
