    Quick poll guys,

    Fiesta red, light coloured rosewood, what's your opinion on pickguard colour?

    It has aged cream on now, I have a spare white, I'm thinking black ( my natural obsession) but I think CAR would suit black but Fiesta is very different so maybe not.

    What says you ?

    3 ply 11 hole parchment - mint green looks like Christmas on red guitars....

    Mint goes well on any color guitar.

    Must be. I like Christmas.

    Mint for me. Just 'cos I like vintage looks I'd go with a 3 ply 11 hole m/b/m, cut a truss access 'notch' for the look then go '62 or '64 hole pattern dependant on my neck's 12th fret dot spacing.

    Mint. Cream, aged white. One of the few colors I like single ply pickguards better

  8. Aside from a Fender bridge, my CV50's Fiesta Red is staying stock.

    Yeah but that's a maple board Barrie. ... mint with rosewood though.

    My CV Fiesta Red MN, I went with 3 ply White and Aged White covers and knobs. Classic 50's look.
    Mint Green + Aged White parts with Rosewood is a very good look IMO, classic 60's Fender look.

    I wanted to do mint, but the mint I had was too minty. On Fiesta Red, mint looks great if it's a more subtle mint color. Mine was borderline green.

  18. Yup … that's the way they came. Most folks wind up doing what they want even after polling us.
