    Mint pickguard, beauty. Man GAS is slowly creeping in.
    Congrats!

    Even MORE proof that a mint guard looks great on a burst. Congrats.

    Oh, excellent! I have those in my Wildwood Thin Skin and I really enjoy them. To my ears, they are definitely ‘less clean’ than the ones on my EJ Strat and it’s easy to get a nice, slightly broken up edge to the sound. That’s probably a horribly inadequate description but suffice to say, it’s my favourite guitar. Take care.

    Beautiful. To go slightly off piste, the number of folk on here that are looking for ‘aged’ plastics that all match, to make their axe look ‘authentic’. Yours looks really authentic because the plastics have ‘aged’ differently. Never had a ‘burst but, well, GAS is coming on fast!

    Congrats! Bursts can get a little weird -- you got a good one.
