I was trying to wrap my head around that light aged looking mint since I've never seen one. Until last night. I ventured out into full germ territory to get some strings at Guitar Center. They had a new Strat with a light mint pickguard. I was impressed. Although I like white and black pickguards I thought the mint color made it look more upscale. The one benefit of everyone staying home right now with the cornholio virus wafting everwhere, is that I was able to go into Guitar Center and actually play some acoustics without hearing 10 guitar players with 6 months of experience blasting away on some tone devoid shredder setting. It was awesome.
