    I decided to change the pickguard on my new Fender Jazz Deluxe. I went from this:

    to this:

    Lovely bass! I would have left the guard white myself, looks great either way though.

    +1 on the "would've stuck with white" thing, but ya know what? Nobody else you're ever gonna see will have something like that bass.

    On a side note, the first thing I thought seeing your new set-up was "Unda da SEA!!" So, have a sweet time with Aqua-bass, even if we plain dudes woulda stuck with white.

    I love that combination.

    It's a nice change from the white, which is kinda boring, IMO.
     
  8. Much improved. IMHO, the white as rather :oops: looking.

    The original pickguard is what Fender calls "mint". I prefer that, but you should use the one you're feelin! :)

    I like it. The original is dull, dull, dull.
     
  11. It looks a helluva lot better than the white. I agree, it kinda made me think of the ocean too. The only kind of white pickguard I like is pearloid. :D

    Loooove the new pickguard. White is sooo boring. Stick with what you feel,though. YOU are the one who's playing it. :)

    Not a downer. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. I expected that some people wouldn't like it. Go figure, but I like it. The great thing about a pickguard is that I can always change it back!
     
  14. Im diggin the new. Anyone can get a Jazz with white, yours can now be called.....Unique!

    That's correct. I usually like mint pickguards, but I just didn't like it on this bass. Maybe it was the two shade of green together......
