    Picked this up the other day. 03 Jeff Beck that's in great condition. I like everything about it but the color. I was on the search for a maple fb Strat but how could I pass this up. I'm thinking someone changed the pg at some point. It looks to have a green shade to it and I don't know if aging would turn it greenISH. I have a white pg for it but it looks fine like it is.

    Nice! I'm sure the pickguard didn't age to green and probably came that way or was installed later.

    I am a big fan of greenish pg, but with a green or blue body color white and parchment looks great.

    Thanks guys. I know me.....I'll love it to death for a while and I'll be on the lookout for another maple fretboard Strat. I have the sickness bad......I understand there's no cure.

    Sweet guitar.

    Not my favorite color in general, but on Strats, JMs and Mustangs I friggin love that surf green, it truly suits the vibe of the instrument.

    And I kinda think the second white pickguard looks better.
