    Finishing up a build, Fiesta Red P/J with rosewood board.
    Torn on the guard, thoughts?

    I would think you're going to get lots of votes for tort and black.

    White pearloid would look great on it!

    In the spirit of not voting for the more common combinations, go with a neon green or bright blue :hyper::bassist:

    Edit: if no pickguard is an option I'd probably go with that

    No pickguard. I've never really been a fan of them.

    I love a red bass with black guard.
