    I dig moto pickguards on most anything.. 'specially Lake Placid Blue.
     
  3. I like them with bright colors in transparent finishes like green.
     
  4. I like vintage on vintage.

    With a white pearloid a classic sunburst is beautiful. And blacks look very nice on naturals.

    Trans-Blue looks cool with a pearloid guard
     
  8. Black, natural, vintage white, white, vintage yellow, sunburst.

    That's all I can really think of.

    Trans blue, or black IMO.

    Trans blues and greens work really well with perliod. My favorite burst with perliod would have to be cherryburst.

    They also look pretty cool against a natural finish

    black basses with any sort of perloid pickguard look damn good.

    dark blue basses with white perloid

    and, imho, vintage sunburst basses look truly best with tortise pickguards

    HI!

    Major, they're awesome. I played a natural finished 4 string in July when I was in NYC. I was tempted to pick it up but I already have 3!! You won't regret it. They thump!

    2000 MIA P Inca Silver w/ blue pearloid. Took me a while to get used to it but I think it looks pretty smart.

    I love the look of brown picasso pickguards on maple bodies. (The guitar on the stand)
    Personally I'm into metallic pickguards though.

    I saw a very nice stingray with a white pearloid pickguard on a white finish and it looked pretty sweet. [​IMG]
