    another vote for tort. If I had to choose anything else I would say black.

    or check out Pickguards.com and see what they have.

    I love tort, but white is the one color that ANYTHING will work with.

    I got this orange acrylic for my Bongo, and I love it. www.pickguards.us has a really nice selection of different materials.

  10. My vote is Tort....classic look

    They'd be my two choices, and I think I'd lean toward the black pearl because I'd guess tort would be the more common combination.

    In fact I have both and think they look fantastic, unfortunately I can't show them to you on a white instrument. I have tort on a candy apple red Jazz and black pearl on a black Strat.

    I hate to agree with the masses but tort or black pearl would be awesome.
  13. Tort for sure!

    You're all wrong!

    The only choice is Tort! I mean come on, am I the only one that could think of that? :rolleyes:


    (or black pearl would be nice)

    Get a black or brown tortise shell pickguard!
  19. It's probably just me, but I don't like tort on a LPB bass. Just a preference...

    A tortoise pickguard is the only logical conclusion ;)
