    Yesssssss!!! Oooh yah that mint guard just ices the cake!

    But don’t forget to order either mint or cream colored knobs and pickup covers. I don’t think you’ll like the look of starch white against mint, but I could be wrong.

    EDIT: actually it looks like your pickups and knobs are nicely naturally aged so it might look perfect

    Is parchment an option?

    White is a little too sterile looking, but I like off-whites, like aged white or parchment. Cream, to me, is a little too ... creamy?

    I don't care for the parchment ones I've seen. Changing pickup covers with these pickups isn't an option either.

    Why is there no mint pearl pickguard? I see an opportunity.

    Edit... dragonfire is on it

    I've actually used one of those before, I'm a big fan of cream and mint pearl guards. Pretty much decided on plain mint for this one....pretty much.

    Whatever you choose, you'll wish you'd gone with mint.

    White or mint works pretty much with every colour..having said that though and since the pickguard is a huge part of the overall look of a strat and we often buy new guitars just for the looks.....its sometimes a good idea to cut an acrylic clear pickguard copy....that way you can stick excellent vinyl stickers on it and completely change the look.Try it first on some image editing software and you ll find out that sometimes things that you would never consider look cool....for example i would easily stick a black carbon fiber sticker on a pickguard instead of going for plain black....the best thing....when you get tired of it(cause you will eventually) you stick another one.......

    3B79 that looks good, but surf/maple and seafoam/rosewood bring out different qualities in some guards. Wonder what it'd look like with one of those heavy chrome metal ones? Hmmm. Look at this!
