    This is an FSR Strat with Texas Special pups, locking tuners, and pearloid pickguard. It just displaced my '74 Strat as my #1. Best playing Strat I have ever had. IMG_1402.JPG

    I would have gone with Creme or Black myself on that one too. Yellow Pearloid or Brown Tortoise look better to me. Perhaps even a gator or rattlesnake skin pattern.

    Not a fan of mint green pick-guards. I love the pearloid. Much better and still a vintage feel.

    What matters is what you think! It doesn’t look bad at all with the MOTS but that body just screams light cream pick guard to me..

    YAY, are you going to sell the Mint Green one?

    If so PM me.

    I'm deeply embedded in the Yay camp.
    IMNSFHO mint green has no rightful place on any guitar and the cream moto is a much better choice.

    I like the change. I also like pearloid in general, and I have it on multiple guitars.

    Some I've shown here before:
