    ok, i just sold myself a bass... it's a beautiful creamy trans white and i want to get a second pickguard for it, it has a white one now. What color do you guys think would look good on trans white. Looking for ideas, i already ordered one, but i won't say what till i hear from you. ;)

    tort is my only choice.... but since you say no tort....

    Purple or Orange Moto
     
  7. Yeh, Tort is the way to go but as you've already said no, Purple Mirror or just purple.

    ok, i am more likely to put a tort guard on there than a purple one...
    i mean, i like Prince and all , but... and i know tort would be the first choice, but i am looking for alternatives ;)

    Cream Pearl is delish..
    Black Abalone is intense..
    i was thinking Black Pearloid as well.
    thanks for the help , guys.. don't stop! :D
     
  18. Tort on trans white is the balls!!!!!... :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:


    but, since you say no tort, I also really like the black perloid.

    Does anyone have pics of the black abalone?
     
  19. how about a green guard? that might look cool.
