I have seen a lot of threads where the Tort. pickguard is the main choice.
What makes it so?
Uh, it looks really nice...
Because of the way it looks.
There are many websites, Ernie Ball's , for one, that allow you to see how their basses look with different finishes and materials. Check them out and see what a difference a pg can make to an instrument's look.
I'm just wondering because when I bought bass back in 2002, before I found Talkbass. I thought about changing my pickguard. That is until I started reading threads about them. I was like cool I have a popular pickguard. When I played with a pick I always liked tort picks.
Anyways, The question has been on my mind for about the past month, so I decided to ask it and get out of there.
Good call. Frees up some space.
Now that's taking a good thing too far. I don't think folks are as particular about picks...
I used to hate tort pickguards... but... they're growing on me. Looks great on sunburst and white basses.
...and black and red...
What about Natural?
The Tort picks had less harsh of an Attack. This is when I was playing that six string thingy. The action is pretty low on my six string thingymabob, so when I used a regular plastic Heavy pick I would get more string buzz than form a tort pick.
I think tort pickguards are the poor man's quilted maple.
Plus, they look good on just about anything.
Thats an interesting idea , I love the way they look on white basses.
Yes, but you realize that that's more of a thickness issue than an esthetic one, right?
It's all plastic.
I refuse to comment anymore on tortoiseshell Pick to save some face and not come off as kookoo.
I want a tort guard made from a real turtle.
Check Warmoth in six months when their most recent hatch are all fully grown.
i wish people didnt like them. then maybe they wouldnt be so much more expensive then every other pick guard,.
