    I like it! But the most important thing is that you like it.

    Personally, I’m a big fan of Shell Pink.

    I like it. I’ll put it in my top 3 choices for Shell Pink. Pink, mint guard and rosewood….perfect.

    I like it a LOT; is that a really long trem bar or does it just look that way in your pix?

    I wouldn't have thought of marring those two colors but I like it.

    Thoughts you ask?

    Looks like something Liberace would have played.

    But if you’re happy I’m happy.

    I am not a huge fan of the shell pink but with that gold on it I have to say that I'm impressed.
    It doesn't matter what I, or anyone else thinks. If you like it and it's yours then forget what anyone else thinks if it turns your knobs.

    Not my style, but if you like it, that's all that matters.

    I think the anodized guard is a bit much - I honestly would have gone with parchment single ply or tort with parchment covers and knobs - but that's only my preferred taste.

    It's your guitar, and whatever works for you is all that matters. Shell pink is an awesome colour.

    I like the color, I’d have put white plastics on it, but that’s just me.

    Overall it looks good, glad to hear you love it.

    One more thing, do not pay any attention whatsoever to other people’s comments about your gear. As long as you’re happy….nothing else matters.

    Is pink a hot button issue? The opinions of a lot of people trumps any further discussion. I have to side with the m asses and condemn pink which was a girly color as recently as 1970.

    I do think the gold guard sets off the light red very nicely.

    Looks good to me and most importantly looks good to you- all that matters in the end

    Shell pink and maple board is timeless and sexy as hell..now you have the chance using that color scheme to make three different looking guitars....gold that you already have,mint green and black....
    Mint green ll give that vintage look and black will make it look very modern.....so get two more pickguards and when(if) you get tired of gold load them on for a different look....better than a new paintjob believe me....;)

    I want to like those gold aluminum guards (I have one unused at the moment) but just can't.
