    More Fun With Scissors and Paper

    The BA5H as it arrived. But I like to fool with pickguards. Thus:


    Oh, and I'm not done yet. Hobby Lobby is right down the street.

    Wow, that's some crazy paper you have there. I like the first three, especially the b/w paisley. I think the blue is too extreme against the silver. You are giving me some ideas to jazz up my generic black and tan SR5.

    I'm a left hander who plays right handed, so I guess that makes me confused.

    Like the paisley, the others - not so much. Of them all, it is like they say "dance with who brung ya". So far the original looks best!

    I totally dig the crazy robots and spaceships, perfect match for the Jetsons angularity of a Big Al!

    Great - Methinks that the bigger patterns are, the better they look.

    +1 for the robots

    Another +1 for the robots and big, bold patterns in general.

    Can I just suggest one thing: cut them for an angle that resembles your playing position. If you intend to take the paper guards out on a stage, that is.

    You can tune a bass but you can't tuna fish.

    jack, get back to collages
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.
