    Love it.
    I'd like a white on white w/maple board P to round out my Precision collection.
    With rosewood, I'd have to go with a fancy tort pg from Spitfire, but the white pg looks righteous as well. :thumbsup:

  2. Agreed, maple looks awesome on a white P!

  3. That's so sexy, white on white on a precision is definitely a great look.

    In general white is my least favorite color for bass or pickguard. However, some contrast really appeals to me to make the white tolerable ( again, my taste only.) Right down to the pickup and screws, to me it makes everything more visually pleasing, kind of like conservative makeup on an already pretty girl.

    I TOTALLY DISLIKE WHITE PICKGUARDS .....UNLESS IT'S ON A WHITE BASS...THAT FIRST PIC OF THE WHITE ON WHITE P BASS IS VERY HANDSOME...I LIKE IT!

    I have this look stock on my avri 63. The pickguard is mint which looks perfect with white. I have had it 2 years and never wanted to change it.

    The reason it works is the neck color. If it was maple i dont think it would do the trick and id probably go with a gold anondized look.
     
  9. White on white FTW no matter what.

    However, my eye prefers a darker PG with rosewood board, and a lighter PG with maple board. So to me, white (parchment, etc.) or gold anodized looks great with a maple board, brown tort is a great match for rosewood.

    My '08 American Standard that started this off is long gone ... but I'm keeping the white P Bass flame alive with my new American Original 60 Precision!

    Love a white P! Prefer creamy off-white to stark pure white...

    Nice thing is, a white P looks good with all kinds of guards--black, white mint, parchment, tort, anodized...
     
  18. I like that look with the rosewood board, with maple i actually prefer black gaurd on white. No right or wrong either way, all about what look you like. But don’t do tort lol tort gaurd s are like ACDC. Popular but played out for sure
