Custom Pick Guard Ideas for my Geddy


Recommended Posts

I bought a black Geddy Lee jazz. I have a friend who does fantastic painting (airbrush stuff) on welding helmets, Xbox controllers, etc. etc. Looks amazing - like a movie poster or pro artwork.


Anyway, I'm thinking I'd like to have him do a pick guard for my bass. Having trouble coming up with an idea. So far we have Pigpen from Peanuts fame. Ideas?

How about a tribute to bass in the classical music realm? A pickguard is fairly sizable palette, so how about the sheet music for Serge Koussevitsky's Concerto for Double Bass in F# minor, Op. 3 (1902)?

Air brush an image of your Geddy with and airbrushed image of a Geddy on the pick guard.


Cool. Let's take it farther. How about a picture of Geddy playing a Geddy with a picture of you playing a Geddy on it.

Lydian mode? The only mode I know has the words "pie ala" in front of it.

As endearing as Ken's PS skills are...


Just try it with no pickguard.


Trust me on this.






It's "naked" as we speak. I do like the look. I need to get some of my daughters black paint and just touch up the screw holes so you can't see them as much.
