Okay, so I want to replace the pickguard on my American Deluxe Ash Strat. It's a tobacco sunburst, and I can't decide between a pearloid or a tortoise shell pickguard. I've seen sunburst strats with tortoise pickguard, but I can't decide whether or not I like them - it almost makes them look kind of dull. It seems that the pearloid stands out more, but I'll get some opinions from UG. Here's the guitar (edit: it actually has gold harware though):

Pearloid. Tortoise looks ugly ass'd on anything IMO.

It's worse pissing when you come in from the really cold weather and your penis has shrunken to the size of a coffee stir straw and the piss feels like the blast from a super soaker.

Pearloids look really cheap to me. The tortoise also matches better.
what is the music theory and what does it teach you, like scales, solos, and to build speed???
