    All in on you black pick guard cutie. Something just feels nostalgic about a Tele with one.

    The off white looks more like a mint green pg than parchment to me? The off white/mint green is my choice.

    You need to post some playing with all 3 guards on so I can tell which one sounds better.

    The pickguard on that Tele looks off.. The gaps around the bridge and controls are uneven. Hopefully that's just an issue with the pickguard being cut wrong..
