    i dont like it, it looks a bit basic without a pickguard but i think it'd be sweet if you got it and put a diamond plate pickguard on it! that'd be awesome! :cool: :bassist:

    No way man, thats the best type of pickguard! Im wondering how awesome it would look in other colors, though.
    I know someone just got a Darkstar P with that kind of pickguard. If I come across the pics again Ill post them.
     
  9. Anyone have a Black P-Bass with a tort guard? I wanna see!

    Give me 10 minutes!
    Keep in mind, i'm missing a volume knob, and one pickup.
    Forget Jaco, MARK only needed 2 ;)

  11. Using Jaco and Mark in the same sentance is very disrespectful to Mark! He's better than that ;)

    Here's my Sadowsky P5 with a spare tort guard that I can install whenever I feel like messing with a lot of little screws. :)
