    Took this Oly White Bullet outa' the box yesterday and thought it was a bit too white overall...
    Had a few knobs and pickguards in my parts drawer and started pretend swaps...
    Didn't think I would like the black guard...but I do :)
    The "dark cream" guard is a new color from Stratosphere and has the "Hendrix" bridge pup cutout.
    The "white pearl" looks kinda' like a cowboy/country Strat IMO...
    I'll put a "vote box" down below so you guys can have some fun to...
    Enjoy :) fullsizeoutput_15a.jpeg fullsizeoutput_15b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_158.jpeg fullsizeoutput_159.jpeg

    Cream looks almost like the anodized gold pick guard! With the gold knobs it ROCKS, you add real brass pickguard screws to match the knobs! And a brass nut and brass switch knob. First place cream it looks like a 50s Strat, 2nd place white Hendrix, 3rd place black it's a modern look and in last place pearloid for that country western Strat Tele Twang.

    I vote none of the above, 'cause I vote for parchment, lighter than cream and darker than white. A perfect match for that color body.

    Dark cream looks best to me from the options you have listed.
    Although mint is my favorite on a white strat.

    Thanks for all the input :) :)
    These are all things I already have in my parts drawer...not necessarily my first choices...
    It's only a $120 guitar so I'm not gonna put $40-45 worth of cosmetics on her.

    The only thing I don't like about Bullets is the single ply guard they come with.
    First thing I do is change them.
    I really like the dark cream guard, black is also good.
    I don't like the knobs tbh, they belong on an Epiphone

    The white guard makes the guitar look creamier in contrast. The Jimi guard does the opposite. Both work for me.
    Those knobs though

    I like those knobs :) :)
    Always thought the stock Strat knobs were a bit lacking in detail...Oh well :)

    I'm not partial to white guitars, especially white-on-white, but if I had to pick one it would be the pearl.

    Black, with white pickups and knobs.

    Dark cream is a close second.

    Lose those gold knobs. They belong on a 70s Epiphone reissue.
