    This is for an Oly White US Pro. I'm leaning toward white pearloid. Gold anodized with a notch for the truss heel adjustment seems hard to find online. What say you?







    White Pearloid


    Gold anodized

    They all look good. You'll probably get the most votes for tort. I like the black PG for that Dee Dee Ramone vibe.

  8. I’m a sucker for that classic white-n-tort. Or black. Anything dark, you need some contrast!

    I wanted to say white pearloid or tort, but the gold looks great (to me) because of the maple fret board

    I voted tort because the ones I’ve seen recently looked great but black works well too.

    I voted white because I’ve been jonesing for a P like that for years. White pearloid is a very close second.

    If you like the tort it's a cool shopping experience. I like high contrast most of the time, so it would be single ply black for me. For some reason, I'm a sucker for white pearloid, but usually the aged or cream white varieties.

    I'm biased. My Stingray came with tort... It may be sacrilege, but I changed it to antique White pearl. I will say.. the gold on white got me thinking though.

    I voted for Tort because I love the white-tort-maple combo... BUT that white pearloid actually looks really nice too!

    I voted for tort. I love tort on white, classic look. The gold anodized also looks great. IMO.

    I voted gold anodized and you can find one on MF for $47. Seems like a good deal assuming it fits well. Looks classy to me.

    Is it 13 hole with a notch for the truss rod heel adjustment? I haven't had any luck finding one of those.
