    Im buying a Sunburst fretless Essex P bass with a maple neck. Once i get the bass, I plan on buying a new pickguard for "fun". Should i get black... or pearloid?

    On sunburst, I like tort. I know that's not one of your options, but that's what I like.

    Of your options, I'd go with black.
