    Yes! It's "YET ANOTHER (bloody) PICKGUARD THREAD"! :D

    So, fellow bassonauts, what would like good on this wine red PJ? IMGP2242.JPG

    Tort or Black imo. :) Don't they have a tort that's sorta redish?

    A number of different "real" tortoise shell pick guards from Spitfire would look great on this bass: Gallery

    My first thought was white pearl, but black would also work.

    No one really does a four hole P style pickguard, do they? So whichever one I choose I'll have to drill a hole for the jack.

    Does anyone have a similar coloured PJ with either a black, white (aged, pearl or plain) or nicer tort guard on it that they can post here?

    Not a PJ, but a quick check for a similar color scheme. You can go to the Fender mod shop (as I did) and play with all sorts of currently offered combos.

    red pearl. red black.

    Black pearl would look great I think...

    Here's a picture of my P-Bass (which is actually more of a wine color than red, even though the picture looks very red) with a black/white/black PG.

    Red P-Bass.

    Is your bass maroon or walnut colored? It's hard to tell from the photo.

    I did a cursory sophmoric cut and uploaded a PNG for you to try different colors or whatever background layers with (TOP PIC)....I tried a few (Lower Pics)

  12. I'd say :

    1. Ditch the tort as fast as you can.
    2. Put on a 3-ply black/white/black.

    I think the Darth Vader one is the winner.

    3 Ply B/W/B is always my go-to.

  16. Now i see that aluminium looking one stands out to me. Ive always liked the look of a nice tort. Especially with the dark red or burgandy. Maybe a little too common though.

    No brainer for me. It'd be white pearl to match my SB-2 and my P. Both of them are dark red with white pearl.
