i am thinking black. it will look nice and dark, being that it is a slightly darker burst than most. i am pretty certain that is what i will do, but if you strongly think it wouldn't be good, and look like shit i would consider changing.

i think i am going to get some graphtech saddles as well.

where would you get a 5 way tele switch? (standard four setup plus the neck pickup bypassing everything) still figuring out the details.

got a set of dimarzio twang kings (bridge and neck) coming in.

its a 2011 American Standard.

Black is a good way to go, but I think some kind of wooden PG would also compliment the grain nicely. No idea about where to get a five way switch, but are you still keeping the top hat piece on the switch? I only ask because a bigger switch getting bumped around would probably sound pretty ugly with 5 positions.

Black would probably work, but if you check out some of the parts places like Warmoth or WDMusic you might be able to find a dark brown- possibly a dark brown pearl- that might work better.

As for the switch, I'd start looking at STEWMAC. WDMusic or Allparts might also have something that works.

i was inspired by cath's that he posted the other day and thoght the black looked really good.

i don't want wood really.

they have to have a 5 way switch, because of the nashville strat they are three pickups and five ways, my USA DLX has a five way switch. works great.

what brand would you recommend for the switch? i like switchcraft if i can find one. the have always done me well. but i haven't tried much else.

I can help you find parts, but, alas, I don't know enough to recommend any.

Warmoth makes a black 3-ply with red, which looks exceedingly good. Definitely worth considering.

Thanks. It's an SX Leo. Super killer guitar but that's besides the point right now.

I put a b,w,b three ply on my ash tele and it looks great but the wood is a good deal lighter than that. You can always Photoshop that image to see what different colors would look like. There are already plenty of pics of burst tales with black pick guards online.
