Hey guys I wasn't sure if this was the right place to ask this however I was curious what neck/pickguard combinations would look good with this awesome nitro body!
I've been thinking about using a roasted maple neck + pearl pickguard but am finding it hard to visualise! I've attached an image of the neck and pickguard however I'm open to all - thanks in advance lads

That combo looks good to me. You've suggested something you like that will look great. You can now top looking for alternatives and start building. IMG_20220705_184257.jpg

The pearl and sienna burst is a classic pairing. I think the roasted neck would also work well if it gets close to the inner color the burst, but if it's too far and doesn't provide enough contract is could look a little odd.

You'll only know when you pair them.

Here's my sienna burst with pearl and regular maple neck:
