    So i'm torn between two pickguards for my lakland skyline bob glaub. It's sunburts with a rosewood neck...

    so is it to be tortoishell or gold ano ( a plastic immitation of the classic anodised guard)

    or maybe i should just keep the mint guard on it!?!!?

    Whichever one the chicks dig.
    Pretty sure they all sound the same.
    Better yet, use some thin Velcro and change them between songs.

    I vote for the velcro. Then they crowd thinks you're changing basses all night.

    Tort! just ordered one myself for a burst, although a local shop has a Am P Special in 3TS with a mint guard and it looks killer.

    I really like the look of Tortise on just about any bass but I'm begining to think it's getting over used. Without a picture of your bass I'm going to assume its a P style, in which case the gold annodized alum would give it a cool and somewhat rare vintage look. Another color you might want to try is parchment, it's whiter than cream, tanner than white and has that aged vintage look, I think it looks better than mint on big pickguard applications like a P bass. Chandler guitars has one of the better pickguard selections on the web if you're still looking for a supplier.
    Good luck
  8. I know what you mean, the white does'nt look quite right with the burst.

    I'd vote for brown tort, or the gold ano.

    Lakland actually makes a high quality gold ano alum guard. I called to buy one for my DD, but was told they're for the USA basses, and they don't keep them in stock. And that it's a $150 upgrade on a new bass.

    This was my CAR Glaub with the Lakie gold ano...

    Actually, I'd bet they all look fantastic. However, since you asked I must state the obvious ..... tort!
