    My thought exactly.

    Sheryl Crow's guitar player one time played a PB Firebird that just made you wet your pants it was so gorgeous.

    The black matches the knobs, but I'm so accustomed to seeing white that it just looks normal to me. And I think it looks good as well. Don't think you can go wrong. Summertime wear white, winter time wear black maybe? Don't want to be a fashion turd.

    That right there is the look to die for!
    Throw in a short scale SG and a short scale Memphis LP both finished in PB with black guards and you'd own the world.

    Well, I have been married for more than 30 years, so yeah, that's apparently true. Depending on who you marry.

    The silver on the TRC looks better IMO, given the color of the knobs. I think the white PG is the way to go to maintain the vintage look. JMO. And no, you’re not the only person who tortures themself with such debates. Shallowness is a virtue around here. Just ask Will. Again, that is a beautiful Thunderbird.

    How do you think I’m coping with all this?

    I was hoping somehow you wouldn't see those gratuitous pics from the Pelham Blue bass orgy. You are an attorney, can't you do something about people posting those kinds of things online? Don't you have a duty to society as an officer of the court to protect us?:D Take deep breaths and remember that crazy person with a watermelon bathing suit dancing that PillO posts that is impossible to unsee or rid of the trauma for days.

    I will be dreaming about that Thunderbird. I see Pilio’s melons in my nightmares.

    My Vintage VP will get a PB refinish at some point. Flying Pig got a fair deal from the shop he used. Out here, it looks like it will cost $100 to $150 more from the checking into it I’ve done. Everything is more expensive here…

    I might have to do some checking around here. There are a few guys here in town that would do a good job. Unfortunately one music store and instrument maker I knew well went out of business. They told me anytime I wanted a guitar/bass refurnished they would be glad to do it for a couple hundred dollars. I just didn't need anything refinished at the time. Interesting store and people. The day began making reproduction and vintage Gibson banjos from the 30s and it took off like crazy among country and bluegrass players. He became a household name which began in his basement and ended up with a really nice music store. But the the father's death and the downturn in 2008 caused them to sell the music store.

    Yeah, that likely didn't come out the way Marshall intended. But I thought PillO was a.....well never mind.

    That is beautiful!!! It turned out fantastic!!! I vote for the black guard, but neither is a bad choice.
