    This guitar has morphed a lot over the last 4-5 years. It's a tribute '59 Mary Kaye, so a single ply or 3-ply could be correct with the rosewood neck.
    She has seen neck swaps, electronic swaps, and of course pickguard swaps.
    Current config is 2015 59 AVRI loaded 10-hole pickguard w/neck from the same.

    Which do you like the best??? Just curious.

    It's a Strat. White.

    Parchment looks like old white so that works too.

    Simples. :D

    It's hard to choose between parchment and tort. I went parchment because it looks like a much nicer version of my Frankensquier (although this photo doesn't show it very well).
