    I bought a pickguard for my Lakland 55-01, but before I make the permanent move of drilling holes for the screws I thought I would see which way you guys like it better.
  2. Not sure the tort is working with that red. Unless you get a black one or some other color, I would say "without".

    I agree. Pickguard, maybe, but not that one.

    I think white pearloid would mighty fine on there. The tort has got to go.
  5. You should put a piece of black paper over it to see how it looks.

    Or even some cool aloha print in that you are in Hawai'i, brudda. Yeah. Black with red aloha print.

    Guess I'll be the voice of dissent. I'm digging the pickguard!

    I'd say maybe a clear guard if you want one? I don't like the tort against that red personally.

    I'd agree with others that a pickguard would look good but for sure, not that color! That color does not look good against the color of your bass at all. I think a white pearloid one would look great.
