    image.jpeg image.jpeg ok I'm making this Nate Mendel my #1!

    But I'm not sold on the black pickguard....

    Help me decide which pickguard to match with this candy apple red finish and the rosewood fretboard.

    Cream?

    Or

    Mint?

    I also have a P-Bass in CAR, and I'm not crazy about the stock white pg.

    I was thinking tort or white pearl for mine...

    Wow someone is way too serious..."very important" is a clearly a ridiculous statement that was meant as a joke. If you have nothing to contribute how about you create a thread whining about how stupid other people's threads are....I wouldn't answer any option on that poll. Thanks for stopping by!

    Well I could have listed clear or black pearloid but those aren't front-runners in my mind. What would you write in?

    Find a relic'd tort guard. That would look very classy. Also, Scott from Scotts bass lessons has been really lighting his Nate Pbass up of late. Def check him out.

    I think a black PG looks best on CAR, but I also prefer a maple fretboard with that color, so keep the black PG and swap out the neck!

    You are correct!.....It WAS a ridiculous statement....Whether it was meant as a joke, or not, is clearly a matter of interpretation....

    Thank you for supporting yet another ridiculous thread :D

    If the fingerboard is maple , black guard is really sexy !!!

    For rosewood fingerboard, i personally prefer 3plys Mint green , 4plys Tort , 3plys Pearl white and Single ply pacthment.

    I bought a Lakland JO4 CAR with a mint pickguard. I couldn't get that pickguard off fast enough. It does not go with CAR at all IMO. I put on a white pearl, then later black. I have another CAR Lakland now and it has a white one. All three look better than cream or mint on CAR IMO. I voted stay with black.
