    I decided to try a few different pickguard patterns and I Photoshop'd them. Thoughts?
    Sorry Nino...The Pearloids look awesome. I am in for it now. He'll probably take an axe to the bass! :crying: LOL


    This is the original with Black Guard

    personally, i think the original black is nicest, but a black pearloid would be runner-up.

    I like the silver and black. Also, the original black. Can you order two so you can swap them out when you feel?

    Whatever pickguard you put on it isn't gonna make you play any better or worse!!!! :)

    I gotta say, IMO, all the perloids looks gaudy and aweful. :spit:

    I am not really worried about that bro. LOL Just like I know you didn't think that a mirror guard was going to make you play better. ;)

    White Pearloid works for me, Nino why don't you just go back to inspecting and "torture testing"! I better be quite, don't want Nino to remember my name when I order my next one! :p

    No, but it's a handy tool to have to blind annoying people in the crowd. :D

    Once again, the young bass warrior defeats his enemies. This time using his ally, light. :rolleyes:

  14. The original black compliments the colour and finish of the bass the best. Everything else is a detraction IMO.

    Some basses would look GREAT with that black perloid, but not this one.

    Basic black is where it is at.
     
  15. I like the white perloid the best ...

    The black looks the best.

    I like the black pearloid, but I still think the basic black looks the best!
