Customized Fender Jazz Bass Guitar Pickguard

(Oh geez!  Here I am showing off my kid’s artwork.)

Further to my previous post on the MIM Fender Jazz Bass;  My daughter wanted to customize the pickguard on her Jazz bass and here’s the results.

I helped her remove the screws and remove the pickgaurd.  She sanded the pickguard to rough up the surface, applied a coat of black paint, then painted on the design.  After it all dried she sprayed on a coat of clear lacquer.

For her, painting this bass was not a random act.  My daughter is an amazing artist and you’ll rarely see her not doing some form of art.  At age fifteen, I think she’s already done her 10,000 hours.  If you’d like to see more of her work please visit her website, A Rose For the Dead.

Her brother, the purist, figures she’s wrecked her bass.  But I see it as a wonderful act of creativity.
