    I just acquired the body from a member here and I have a Deluxe neck already. I have an HSS harness that is going to go in it. I have a plain white and a cream guard but I wanted to get more ambitious.

    I'm finding this pearl color to be warmer than I expected and I'm having a hard time deciding which direction to go.

    It may not be a big departure but how about mint green?

    I imagine that mint would also look very nice.

    I like the aged pearl. I have an HH guard like that. I was liking a black pearl but the guitar might still be too off-white to pull it off.

    How about a brushed-metal or anodised pickguard like aluminium/copper/bronze?

    CA677234-3DD0-4798-9A2E-A4AEABADCB4A.jpeg I told you the guitar looked “creamy” to me. Here’s why. I just took the pickguard off. Look at how much it has faded.

    I've always liked the look of tortoise guards on white strats.

    Not exactly the same color but I've had a bunch of the Blizzard Pearl Fender starts. I used a chrome metal guard on one and really liked it.

    It’s a brush metal guard vs. aged pearl at this point.
