    I am waiting on deliver of a CIJ 62 P in Vintage white/tort guard and rosewood neck.

    I'm not a huge tort fan, although it does look fantastic on this colour combo.

    What else looks good against Vintage/Oly White, what other combos have you guys tried.

    Pics would be great

    I have a bass like that and always left it tort, but I think abalone would look cool. Cool but $$$

    Only other colour pickguard apart from tort I've have on white would be black. Anything else would look cheap IMHO.

    I know it’s a matter of personal taste, but damn, tort looks perfect on vintage white, especially with a rosewood board.

    Black would come in a distant-second imho.

    Maybe gold like the '57. Wonder how it'd look with a rosewood neck.

    I used to have a Vintage White Am. Std. Jazz with a rosewood board. I think it was a '96. I used to alternate between tort and white pearl. I love tort, but I actually thought the white pearl looked killer on the Vintage White. That bass is one that I regret selling.

    Gold Anodized

    or if you can find one Black Machined Turned
