    Its subtle, but I’m really happy with the slight bit of contrast between the parchment guard and the aged white accessories. Not too big a change, but enough, ya? :)

    I had to look a couple of times to catch it. I like that parchment look too! Nice job. Looks great.

    I love precisely that combination, and it looks great on your guitar!

    From an Orange, to a Bogner and a Budda. Yah, I get it.

    Oh, and some new plastics! Subtle, but nice. I tend to do that kind of stuff.

    Looks awesome, but I'm still waiting on the mint pickguard!

    Less is more!
    New look is much better imo.
    I’d always have aged accessories with a white guard (as per my pic)
