    Im surprised theres not too much showing up on google when I try to find people swapping the pickguard on their am pro white strats with maple fretboard.

    I love how the white look on instruments but I think the white on white combo with the maple fretboard is kinda dull so if you have swapped your white american pro pickguard show me! :cool:

    Mint would look good. Also you might try tortoise. Did you get the Pro or order one?

    I think most people consider Olympic White with a white pickguard to be classic.
    I have seen tortoise, mint, gold anodized and black on Olympic white, I don't think any them look nearly as good as the white.
    But Google Olympic white and _____pickguard in each color combo you want to see and you should get plenty of results.

    Yes plenty of results but none of the actual am pro, just other american models or custom shop strats, am pro maple necks look very light pale so the white on white combo look very dull to me

    I'm in love with this combination!
    For me it is so "sexy"!
    Pale male neck will become dare with aging.
