    Mint or parchment. White also looks good.

    Aged white or aged white pearl. Parchment is a bit dark/tan.

    I don't like the mint on seafoam, esp with white pickup covers and knobs. Looks dingy. Either black or white is better, but white is classic. Single ply white is my vote.

    Unless you're Navajo, in which case tooled silver and riffing off that turquoise and silver jewelry could be cool.

    I've been a fan of the aluminum guards for many years, and they come in some cool colors as well. On top of that they don't cost much.
