    mirror would look pretty radical...
    u shud also look for a checkers pickgaurd...
    that would be flashy

    White pearloid on red looks gorgeous.

    True, my teacher'S guitar is red w/ white pearloid guard. Mirror would look cool though, maybe like a different colour mirror, like black mirror or soemthign.

    I saw this Valenti bass made on the Warmoth site. With the maple fretboard and black hardware there's something very voodoo about it.

    How's about you combine the most popular two. A black mirror, perhaps?

    Thanks

  15. i hate pearloid. i vote for black or tort.
     

  16. Just kidding on that cause he is from London, but I agree it would look like ass.

    My personal fav at the moment would be this if I were in the market for one. Would look good on My white Fender with Rosewood board.

    Not this particular one as I have a Jazz but you get the idea.
