    I agree with this. I'm a sucker for maple fretboards but a tortoiseshell pickguard just looks so perfect with rosewood. Great guitar, OP!

    Beautiful. Hngd.

    Mint or parchment look so good with Olympic White.

    Looks great.I like the tortoiseshell pickguard...it works with the white and Rosewood fretboard.But mint green is my favourite for that color combo.

    OW was my second choice.... But, not by much.

    Love my (sunburst) AmPro II. Welcome to the club!


    I have really grown to appreciate the tort guard on mine... But, I do really like it on the white!

    Thank you all! Yeah I'll leave the tort on there for now.
    Used to have a white blonde american deluxe with tort guard and rosewood...this guitar reminds me of it!
