    So I had an LTD MF-207. I didn't love it, but it wasn't a bad guitar. Except for the inlays. I REALLY hated those inlays. I decided to take it back to the pawn shop I got it from, and got this instead. It was decently set up (the shop's manager is a guitarist and a good friend of mine), but due to people messing with it, it's not as good as it was and the tuning's messed up. It's getting a proper, professional setup next week, though, so I can give you thoughts on sound after that. I will say, however, that it plays better than the MF-207. On to the pictures!

    Thanks guys! I (surprisingly) love this finish, and this is coming from a guy who usually hates black guitars (I know, that's so unique of me! /sarcasm). It's all in the sparkle ;)

    I was thinking about putting a pickguard of some sort on it, maybe something like this:

    or making one myself with some custom artwork on it. Thoughts?

    Congrats.

    I think the Black Pearl looks sexy without the added pickguard. It might be a tad much with that finish.
    Just my opinion tho.

    Congrats! I bought 2 of those myself this month, nice guitars.

    I'm toying with the ideia of puting a white pickguard on my BP, I agree with the above post that pearl pickguard will get it looking too busy. Also I dont like pickguards that the pickups don't attach to.

    Yeah I've decided not to go with a pickguard. I printed off a picture of it and put it on the 7421... no me gusta :ugh:

    The finish isn't textured, that's just my camera. For a phone camera, it's pretty good (8 MP), but it's still iffy if you don't have the right lighting.
