I've decided to put a thumbrest on my '51 RI p-bass. The main factor is that there is already a hole for 1 in the pickguard. I've found a guy who custom makes them as I'm after the single screw one. Anyway onto the main point, its sunburst with a slightly stained/stressed white pickguard. As i like the look of this I think a brand spanking new black/ebony thumbrest might look out of place. So the quesion is do i go for a natural wood colour one or do i go for his suggestion which is to paint a maple one black and then wear off some of the paint? Thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong board.
