    White pearl is the universal pickguard material...

    How about clear?

    I can go with white pearl and black though.

    Red w/ a red tortoise guard always did it for me.

    I agree 110%.

    Mirrors look great on every color.

  11. The mirror on the red jazz would be freaking awesome. But, if not mirror, get white.

    Mirror. I got a Midnight Wine MIM Jazz with a Mirror pickguard and a black control plate and I love it so much that I'm getting a black J-retro to continue the tradition. I'm prolly gonna need to get a new pickguard since mine is getting scratched up. Prolly another mirror, but white pearl is crossing my mind.

    that mirror does look real nice. i actually decided to order the transparent orange finish at the last second. i think it's coming with a black pickguard. the bass has a rosewood fretboard. i'm thinking orange, black, and brown won't look too good together.

    I don't think it'd look too bad.
