I just got my American standard stratocaster body from ebay yesterday. I wanted to know which color would look best on a loaded pickguard. Black, white, mint green white, or a tortoise. I think they will all look good, but i can't seem to figure which will look best. The body is 3 tone sunburst. Thanks.
Yes... none of those would look good a sunburst except white really. You could get away with tortoise... but mint? What the hell is wrong with you? lol just kidding man.
i always fancied a gold anodised one for my tobacco burst strat........ but I am odd.
White with '57/'62 PUs, obviously.
Black actually looks quite nice as well, but, yeah, might as well conform.
i've just fitted a black HH pickguard to my 3 tone burst strat copy. looks pretty good. white is the classic choice though, depends if you want to be different or not.
I'd say black.
Tortoise or Black. white always looks a bit "stuck on" to me.
