    Black on black, jon. No other color looks as pretty on a stingray, except for maybe that burnt apple finish with a black pickguard. Tortoiseshell on black, gross...

    Jon, keep it black, tortiseshell looks hidous on black, maple or rosewood.

    Now, if you have a white/rosewood...tortiseshell is killer lookin'.

    I have a Black on Black Ray w/ a Rosewood board coming on monday and I just got a Tort to go on it but I must admit that it looks stellar with all black and a Rosewood Board. But the Tort makes me think of Vintage Jazz Basses and I like it.
