White p/g ---> cream

    I've been thinking how good a slightly creamy coloured p/g might look on my (sunburst) bass - currently it has a bright white one.

    Seeing how the existing one has done me no harm (been to all my gigs and fits the bass nicely and all), I then started ondering if it could be modified appropriately. Spraying it's one idea, but I also wondered if a good dose of u/v might do the trick (we've got plenty here in Oz, and someone ought to use it for something clever :)).

    So - anyone know if I just screwed it to a piece of timber for a month (yep - got a month off :() and just left it in the sun whether it'd yellow up a little, preferably without turning to powder?

    All advice gratefully received!

    From what i understand the newer pg's material are hugely resistant to any discolouring.

    I would save yourself any hassle and get a copy made.

    I know that jeannie pickguards in the US, will make you an exact copy of yours, if you send them yours.

    I have had a couple made and they are perfect.
    I'm sure they will have cream material.

    Cost around $30 + postage.

    I had mine back within three weeks.

    Give them a call, talk to roger.
