A boring P build.. or is it?

Recommended Posts

Definitely black. For me the white just sort of glares too much. Whereas the black sets off the grain really well

What's the possibility of ageing the white scratch plate to more of a buttercream colour?

Soaking it in real coffee for a few days will do that

Possible, but a bit too much effort for a cheapie like this - I might look to find a proper cream guard for later

Most of the coffee gets drunk in our house well before soaking can occur :D

Seems to have had that effect on my teeth over the years!

Too late, but I'd have gone for the white, for the contrast with the (probably) black pickup. Either way, this has that brown 70's look I love. Really great finish!

The black one sort of reminds me of that roasted ash p bass that Fender did recently, and I quite liked it, what about a single ply, matt bakelite looking plate?

As a cheap build I tried the two spare p guards I had - They are cheap as they are free ;)

Agree tho - a single ply black would look good
