    I put this black one on when I bought this Strat the other day because I needed one immediately and all 3 shops I went to only had black, white and white pearl. White and white pearl were out so I went with black. I like it alright, but just alright.

    Cream Pearl is what I really want.

    I usually don't care for tort unless it's on a black guitar, but it looks alright in this pic.

    Mint green looks good too.

    Mint green I think is the only way to go @Lonn but I think your pickups are too white, it might clash.....

    Yes my pickups and knobs don't match which also bugs me lol. May have to clean the knobs really well to whiten them up a bit.

    Tortoise looks nice on it, dark colors like that bring the true seafoam hue out. Mint green makes it look like surf green.

    I love the look of a mint guard and aged plastics on the pastel colored Strats, especially Seafoam. I think the mint contrasts with the pastel colors and gives a real nice vintage-era vibe.

    Not a bad thing. Wish I could swap the pickup covers and knobs to black but of course that's a no-go. Really hate to say but white may just be what the doctor ordered in this case.

    Here's one with mint and white plastics that looks pretty good. Custom Shop 59. May have a winner. I love Google images.
