Black Pearl?



Black pearl looks classy

I saw Sheryl Crow playing 'favourite mistake' on a black/dark rosewood/black pearl P bass on VH1 years ago and thought it was well classy looking, but the rosewood board needs to be ebony coloured or it looks a bit odd against the brown of the rosewood.

I'd go tort for rosewood and black pearl for maple...

Are you me by any chance?[/quote]
Jeez, I don't think so..........are you crap at dancing and do you collect obscure tankards? Also you do seem to have some of my basses, including a Rick - Thinking of putting a mirror guard on that in fact (Jetglo with knackered white p/g) But where are my others, eh? :)

And here's another black on black (mine actually) which shows the effect of having the white strip in the guard. Not a real Fender but close enough...

Thanks all. I reckon BWB is the way to go. The Abalone is rather lovely but not really Indie Rock covers ( wot I do ), more Mike Flowers Pops.

Apologies for straying off the black topic, but what brand are these? If it was missing the J pickup the sunburst P5 would be EXACTLY what I want (lookwise anyway).

I like that a lot.

I think I need a black P.

No, 2 back Ps; one with a black plate, the other with gold anodized.
