If you're looking to make your Fender P-Bass stand out from the rest, visually, this is a good buy. Easy to put on, looks great, and makes your bass look one of a kind!
4 ply, 13 holes, and the finest white pearl finish you'll ever see. I got this particular one about 4 years ago as a gift to replace the thin plate that my '01 squier affinity P sported. It's as solid today as it was when I first put it on, but the area around the output jack did crack a bit, and there's some rust stains, but that's just from the 11 year old Chinese made parts that were past their prime. I'd recommend getting yourself a power drill, or put a lot of good ol fashion elbow grease when installing on a squier, lining up the holes is tricky, but it fits like a glove otherwise. If you're looking for a lasting, fashionable scratch plate to spice up that plain white stock plate, this is definitely the item for you.
I bought this pickguard for my Squier Affinity P Bass. That factory white pickguard was a little too dull for me, so I ordered one of these. Now, although it's classified as a "White Pearl" pickguard, it's actually more "Vintage white pearl" in color. If you're looking for WHITE pearl, you're going to have to special order something. I am a little disappointed at its "Off-white-ness" but it doesn't look bad by any means. And it feels so much stronger and well made then my old one. However, I did have a great deal of trouble getting it to fit on my P Bass. This is probably because I have a Squier. I'm sure there are little measurements that are not as closely monitored on a Squier as they are on a Fender, so it's more the bass's fault then the pickguard. And after a few days of careful sandpapering, and this pickguard slid right on lke it was custom made for my bass! With just the addition of a new pickguard, I swear my bass looks as if it costs a few hundred dollars more now.
