    When I bought this bass, it had a white pickup and a plain white pickguard on it. I traded my white pickup for a black one from a guy in Canada and I ordered the tort pickguard through Ernie Ball.

    Sweet bass. What color is that? It looks too bright to be Blue Pearl.

    Love the bass, pickguard looks horrible. White pearloid or silver pearloid though... hot.

    That's blue pearl in bright sunlight. I know that some aren't crazy about the tort on blue, but I really like it. The car, which isn't mine, is a 1950 Chevy Deluxe Sedan. It was the first year for the automatic transmission and it is one of 125 made that has it.
     
  7. Looks like an album cover for a country band...... Very cool!

    Congrats, I also recently got a SR5. Going to post pictures as soon as I get them scanned.

    I found that the piezos make it much easier to tame the ray sound if needed.

    That blue body colour in your photo will take someone's eye out... :smug:

    Nice bass...Very Nice backdrop...
     
  11. +1!

    It does look like it could be an album cover for a Country band. :cool:

    My favorite pickguard color is tort, and the black pickup cover goes well with the neck, so I give your bass a 10. ;)

    I think the tort guard would look better in real life. Blue pearl is a much deeper, darker color under normal lighting.
     
  15. Very nice bass...
    Nice taste for tort and pickup, I hate white ones too....
    That bass is awesome!

    Well, for me, tort with blue sucks under any lighting. Tort goes well with sunburst. Blue goes well with white, black or chrome. But not tort... IMO, of course.

    Nice car... buddy of mine has a 50 Deluxe...I seem to think his has an auto as well. Small world.

    It's funny, when you pull into the school parking lot (in warmer months) you see a 87 El Camino and a 1950 Chevy Deluxe first thing.

    Nice bass too :)

    Tort goes much better with warm or neutral colors. But that's just MHO. If you like it, don't change it! Thanks for posting the pics.

    wow, i can't believe people don't like that tort.
    personally i think a white pickguard and pickup would look terrible on that bass. i like the change to tort. i think it looks great :)
