    The parchment looks great! Try adding covers and a thumbrest for that retro look.

    I prefer tortoise shell over white. White on white just screams MIM P bass to me. Nothing wrong with that, just not my thing.

    I checked the Allparts website to look at their tort J-bass pickguards and they have a red and brown tort that are $34 and $35 bucks respectively. If I do this at all, I'll give Stew-mac a shot at $23 bucks plus $8.50 for shipping . Plus I need a couple of fretting tools so I'll do it all at once. I've ordered a few things from them and they are great and have a good return policy. Right now I'm just gonna play the bass and think about it later. How's that for not lettin' the GAS get to me...lol? :D )-(
     
  5. Olympic just SCREAMS for a really good mint, for me.

    Callaham makes a fantastic one for strats, I wonder if pickguardian or someone has a similar quality one for P.

    My Nash, which is in the classifieds. I was going to go with a Spitfire tort, but the mint is pretty cool. This pic does not do this bass justice. There is more of a contrast that what is seen here...the beat up Nash finish which is somewhat flat and the aged mint guard. I need to take some close ups, but here she is:

    Don't discriminate, all P love is good love. If loving a P is wrong I don't wanna be right.

    Very 80s looking. Not my thang - I've never liked White instruments (annoying, since my primary is a holly wood topped bass - which looks like white paint!)
     
  14. My name is Pet Sounds, and I approve of white-on-white-with-rosewood Precision Basses.

    Used to have white pearl on mine but switched to tort. I'll probably change it back again at some point.

    Well you did ask for opinions. I flipping hate white basses. I feel the same about white pick guards :vomit: Kind of like mashed potatoes w/o gravy. Some color, any color.

    I like the white on white with rosewood look. My fretless has that combo but the white has aged heavily.

    I'm a big Brian Wilson fan as well. This combo is clean and classy.
