  1. Shall I change my pickguard to black? Leave it white? Peel carrots?

    (And NO! I will not go tort!)

  3. Boredom? Lack of a better project? Gaping void in my life?

    I've been pondering the same for a few years now... it's still white, and I don't even notice it while playing ;)

  5. Be original - make a custom pg from a laminate like formica.

  6. I'd dig that on a solid bass. I think that's why I dont like tort on sunburst (Sorry Father, I have sinned) 2 patterns is too busy!

    White pearl would add some pizazz without changing the look of the bass. Of course this is IMHO.

    i voted black...because that's what i always do. but i have to say that the right tort might actually look good.

    long live black! :D
  14. Generally my philosophy for most matters....
  15. Got white pearl on my other bass! I'll take pearl over tort any day
  16. Great idea! If they can do it for eyeglasses....

  18. Be careful, you'll need to drill hole; you have one of those Squier which doesn't use a standard pickguard. You may also have to adapt around the pickup cuting.

    Can you provide a close up picture of your headstock please? I'm intrigued; thanks!
