    The story on that is my wife wanted a xmas tree but could not put one up cause our cat stinky Batmen keep knocking bulbs off and climbing it. So I told her I would do a guitar xmas tree in our room, I had already been eyeing it at the local vintage guitar store (Backwoods guitar, in a renovated old building downtown).
    So wala

    Very cool. I work in the engineering and design field, so I’m a sucker for stuff like that

    Leave it as-is if you like it. If you want to be vintage correct... in the 50s and 60s the back plates were white no matter what the pickguards were. IMO I like the tort backplate. I had a tort guard and backplate on a Sonic Blue Strat because I thought it looked good.
