Probably a stupid question, since the Hagström Swede is a LP-style guitar, but I need answers so I thought I would ask.

Thinking about switching the backplates on my Swede to black ones (Black guitar, cream plates = not satisfying) and I wonder if the size of the Les Paul-plates differ from the Swede ones? Looks identical, but the size could be different. No big money will be spent, but it would be some money saved otherwise.

Second question, same with the pickguard?


Not my pictures, but you get the point.

I've heard it both ways
Yeah! I think it looks good on the white one, but I would rather have pure white ones with the black guitar instead of cream, but that's me.
