    Wondering if anyone has a sunburst strat with a cream pickguard, cream knobs and pup covers out there that could post some pics. Tried a google image search and really didn’t see any.

    Cream knobs, no, but there's still an old cream separator out in the barn.

    Heres my Greco. I think the guard was white originally but 40yrs later it cream. I think it looks nice

    I think that in Fenderspeak the color is Aged White.
    Not common for pgs but a plethora of knobs, covers and tips are produced in this hue.

    Nah, a bit too monotone for me, but Boxi does come close. Single ply 50's guard, but the 95 knobs and pup covers are original.

    My pick guard is white single ply. I think cream pup covers and knobs accent it okay. It came with the pizza

    Don’t really know what color it is, but know it’s not white.

    Here is my 1988 American Vintage hybrid ('57 body with '62 neck). The white guard had morphed to a creamy color and I quite like it. White paper added to show the difference in color.

    I just made this body out of queensland maple, and put a Mighty Mite neck on it that I scalloped. Not cream exactly. Cream of bowling ball?

    @pwhite Did you reshape the trem arm?

    Looks pretty different than stock in the pics. Could be the camera angle...

    Doesn’t look like anything other than white mother of toilet seat to me.

    No, at one time I had a MIJ from 88/89 and that was the trem arm that came with it. Someone had bent the crap out of it, I had it in a drawer and found it one day so I stuck it on. I played it like that for 6 months or so. I have it on there still but I eventually took it to the shop and re-bent it the way it should be. It didn't play all that bad when it was all messed up, in fact I kinda like it, but people just kept asking me wtf is wrong with that arm?
