    ok i'm weak, i posted a few weeks ago about my GAS for a mike dirnt p bass. i'm gonna order one of these tonight or tomorrow morning. i'm torn on the color. on the one hand, a vintage white with a replacement black pickguard would look awesome, on the other there's the black with a white pearloid guard...anyone have any pics to share...

    :cool:
    I dig the sunburst, take pickguard off?
     
  5. Personally, I'd be torn between the 2-Color Sunburst and the Black. I don't like the look of the Vintage White in this picture. For the black, I would personally keep the pickguard stock white, as that "tuxedo" look is so slick. However, a tortoise pickguard might look cool, too. Lately, though, I've been on a black-white P-bass kick (to match my Jazz Bass), so take my comments for what they're worth.

    yeah...i've been debating this for a while. musiciansfriend.com finally got the vintage white in today, but i've also been checking the fender site and the vintage white looks bananaish in color. i wonder if it looks that way in real life...the black with pearloid is looking better and better...

    here's a website with some nicely priced pickguards for the dirnt...http://www.terrapinguitars.com/pg/mikedirtntpbass_materials_list.htm

    well nice prices on the non-pearloids...
