    I've been thinking about getting a new pick guard for my jazz bass as the stock white seems pretty bland. I've been leaning towards black or possibly a black pearloid but I'm open to suggestions.

    Here's a pic of the bass in question

    I think anything other than white will look great!

    Chrome?

    Tort?

    Bold color?

    Black?

    These would all work.
     
  3. Either black, black pearliod or mirrored would look sweet i think.

    This looks good as is, but if you must change, I'd go with black. Black pearloid? :rollno: IMO
     
  5. Try black.

    Black completes any look.

    I hadn't even considered tort! Now I'm torn between that and black... :bawl:

    Maybe this would look good. --> Clicky

    Or maybe not.
     
  9. Black, faded black.
    Vintage white (slightly green)
    Mirrored
    Chequer plate
    Custom -flames, photos, artwork print, etc.
    Glue your own picture/print to back of a Perspex or polycarbonate sheet (off cuts are cheap), trace shape/ hole positions, etc.
     
  10. That black is sexy. Black gets my vote.

    Purple pearloid would look cool. It would certainly be unique, and no you don't have to be a Prince fan to like that.

    Grey pearl (i.e. Black pearl that isn't too dark)
     
  14. Black pearloid. White pearl as my 2nd choice. Or,do away with a 'guard all together.
     
  15. Black or black pearloid.
     
  16. My vote for mirrored!!!

    I've had purple pearloid, it really needs a specific bass in order to pull it off, and I haven't found it yet. It's not that it's ugly, it just hasn't looked right on any bass I've seen.

    Yes it is very nice on a rosewood neck but remember, the OP's bass has a maple neck. Makes a difference in my opinion.
     
  19. BLACK
     
  20. Have you seen the "black & maple" club here on TB? Some of those basses are pretty good looking IMO.
