For me it was a no-brainer…
Lets see some photos!
If after is the white, it looks so much better! If not, sorry
After is white! the gold is nice but when it hits the light at a weird angle it turns a piss yellow color
Here are all the versions I tried before settling on the 60’s American original “eggshell” guard. Stock was the mint green. The cream colored one seemed cool in theory but when it was actually on the guitar it had this weird pink color, I guess it didn’t pair with the surf green too well...
Don't underestimate piss yellow tho, If you take enough vitamin B Complex you'll get a highlighter color thats just mind blowing!!!
(BTW didja ever get a dual stream? Thats just funny)
Thats a fine guitar, nice contrast between the white guard and the aged hardware
Wow!, that's one of those night and day differences
I was trying to copy this custom shop guitar
well i'd say you nailed it! and if yours is nitro it shouldn't take long to acheive that look
I have one to add.
and after (with Fat 50s):
Kept the pickguard...dumped the plastics....
Wow... Geez that's an awesome colour, particularly the wood grain showing through in the close up shot!
Love the new pickguard, that really compliments the whole vibe beautifully.
What's the colour called?
Is that a stock, factory colour?
That looks like the zappa Stratocaster. I am a fan
It’s a standard Fender color on a Player series Strat called “Aged Cherry Burst”
Yeah..I hadn't seen that one till after I did it. Wasn't a deliberate attempt at imitation. I just thought all black with natural looked badass...
I hated the stainless one that was on my guitar when I bought it.
100 x better
Went from tortoise shell to mint green on my Blonde '62 RI. Fairly drastic difference - I think in some ways the tortoise shell might look a little better, but it just wasn't quite my vibe. I like the classic 60's feel of blonde and mint.
2014 Roadhouse - Ocean Turquoise, Mint pickguard, black humbucker, maple neck. (Factory stock)
Replaced with a Warmoth tort pickguard, and a Zebra SD humbucker (this is a JB, but I have a Pearly Gates that looks identical)
Then replaced the maple neck with a Jim Root USA, ebony board... not for looks... but because I like the feel.
