Silver PBass Pickguard options

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a Fender MIM PBass in Silver with white pickguard and Pau fretboard 

Looking for suggestions to change the pickguard but I’m not sure on colour apart from black 

Any ideas ?

I think it's pretty much a black and white decision (sorry, couldn't resist).  Grey pearl might be fun though?

Tortoiseshell?

Mind you, I've recently gone from hating tortoiseshell guards to picturing them on just about every bass and guitar I see and liking the result, so I'm not sure my judgement can be trusted.

Nice. on that... Black plate, black screws n black knobs... I'm old n plain and simples

or something Bright 'n LOUD... Yellow, Lime Green, Flu Orange... depending on ya demographic? Welsh Flag, Scotish Saltire or other nation (under a groove...)

For some reason the UJ or St Georges never cuts it quite like say the Brazilian flag etc. Thinking of Car Drivers and Motorcycle racers...

What's wrong with white? Looks classic as it is. I'd suggest black or brown tortoise shell, or maybe aged pearl. Anything else will look naff. 😆

I suppose you could go for a mirror guard, but personally I think it would be OTT and finger marks show all the time. Otherwise clear.

Years ago I had a special edition '57RI Precision in Inca Silver, with an anodised gold guard.

It looked totally sweet. I wish I'd kept it. Or taken a photo of it, even.

A bit like this one (although I think this is platinum)?  I'm actually rather liking that combo the more I look at it.

Yep, just like that.

I generally dislike white pickguards, however, I think it looks good on silver

Yeah, have to say despite my anodised comment above, I'd be sticking with white if it were me.
