    It's staying the way it is for now, but mint or white might still be in it's future...not all of us appreciate the gaudy things in life such as you sir....but I do have a Fiesta red CV50 on the way, maybe that will take care of the need for mint ;p :p

    I thought the CV had gold hardware or I wouldn't have bothered - mine is the only gold in the house ! I like mint on white also - but that CV should stay stock - it's our logo ? lol

    Leave it as is... almost.

    When Leo first invented the strat (with lot of help it must be said although he was the driving mind behind improving on the tele) he envisaged it with a metal guard but the material he used coloured the early prototype player's fingers so eventually white plastic became the standard.

    Gold's the fella for a 50's strat. Now pop a round string tree on for that fully authentic '54 look... and go so far as to consider a 'original contour body' decal for the headstock... over the finish of course (you could go the whole hog and cover the existing logo with clear decal paper over the top to go Fender Classic series detail).

    ... and if you really wanna go for it no expense spared a MIM bridge unit for the bigger block and better materials plus more vintage correct bent steel stamped saddles.

    Anyway, I digress.

    It's a minter and a thing of beauty.

    Very nice.
    I'm glad your going to give the gold a chance.
    Photos never seem to do Flame justice IMO.
    As good as the Flame looks in your pic, I'll bet it's amazing in person.

    Your choice, of course, but I'd say KEEP that gold pickguard. Looks great. Classic.

    I let the gold ride for a while, but I switched it out yesterday and couldn't be happier. The mint went onto the white CV70, so the white CV50 got even whiter. I'm a happy camper.

    It's a beautiful guitar with either pg. One of the few maple fretboards that have caught my attention.

    I had one of those, but I sold it, 'cause I just have to have rosewood on my Strats. I replaced the guard with an 8 hole single ply white one, and it sounded way better, 'cause the metal one was killing the highs.
