    I just picked up a brand new MusicMan SUB on clearence two days ago, and this pickguard is driving me nuts. Which pickguard should I replace it with? White Pearl or black? The bass is teal, with a black neck and headstock. I'm afraid that White pearl would clash with the black, but I'm also afraid a black pickguard would be just a bit too much black.

    Why do you care what others think? Just get what you like.

    There - I added Black Pearl to the poll, and moved my vote over.
     
  10. You can't buy pickguards from EB, because Stingrat PG's won't fit a SUB, so you'll have to make it yourself, or let it done bij someone.
    and a black PG is always nice ;)

    You sure? Holes not line up? I remember seeing somewhere that they're the same pickguard.

    If thats the case, there is always WD.
