After a year and a half of owning my Squier strat, the pickguard is slightly yellow. Is this normal at all?

Do you use a yellow pick? I know some of my friends have different colors because of picks. I had a squier since i was 10 (4 years) and its still white.

I use different colored ones, but how should the color change it? Am I supposed to stab the guard repeatedly when playing?

LOL, thats what I was thinking. Maybe the guy picks his guard instead of the strings

Have you ever heard of metal? Because thats effectively what you've just described.

This is slightly confusing...
Unless it gets excessive use of smoke near it it's a bit fast.
As much as it's a bit of a dim thing, is there protective plastic over the pickguard still? Cos I know that yellows real quick and some people miss the fact it's on there.

My Carvin strat has had LOADS of smoke near it (my dad's a chain smoker and my guitars always out when he's around it, he smokes 400 or more a week) and it's still as white as white can be.

Carvin's have anti yellowing agents in there white paint and pickguards, I'm sure a squier wouldn't.

Looks better... just change it if you don't like it.
