    It's naturally aged, it would be hard to match.....did you order 'white' or 'parchment'? Parchment might be closer but still not that 'creamy'

    Check out the pickguards from Overdrive Custom Guitar works. You should be able to find a match there

    You pay a premium though for the quality.

    ok, .. yikes... looks like i’m not going to match it.

    i don’t like the “greyish” look of eggshell. does Fender not make an 8-hole 1-ply AGED white?

    bleck. tediousness.

    That's tough. I just bought a 20 year old strat ... The pickguard is yellowed but not that yellowed. I got a replacement in parchment that is a really close match, but *slightly* not as yellow/warm. I'll put it on next time I change strings and let it start aging itself...
