  • ^ Bottom middle (4-ply vintage celluloid brown) looks good, right...? But IRL it's got these big yellow voids like no real stuff I've ever seen. Honestly not sure about it. See example below on a three-pickup Jaguar.

    So the option I went with, the printed 'intense'... arguably closest to stock 80s/90s MIJ, also it's cheap and what the hell it's only a Squier. Shown below on a silver Strat Deluxe.

    Wrong choice? Do tell, am all ears...

    More stuff.. Tiny Tone https://tinytone.co.uk/custom-scratchpla­tes/
    or their flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/jacksinstr­umentsvcs/49950781633/in/album-721576383­10065895/ . I have considered, and abandoned, anodised gold, bronze, gold plastic, black, tiger stripe, etc etc etc....

    You forgot pearloid! 🤮

    I'm sure it'll look great, once it's on you'll forget about it... Mojoaxe have some very nice stuff tho' it's a bit on the dark side, not sure if available as a sheet...

    Lovely bass, makes me miss my long gone white MIJ Jazz medium scale... Electrics were shit but it was great when it worked... It let me down when we had a couple of shows in Paris, someone came through with a full scale 70s Precision with a monstrously high action... I was grateful for the loaner but not a very happy bunny, such stressful gigs! Screw full scale basses!!!
