What color pickguard would look good on my vintage white (cream) stratocaster?

    I would like to change the pickguard on my guitar. It has the stock white 1 ply now. I don't want black, but can't decide between tortoise, parchment, mint, or gold. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Black guard, black knobs, black pickups. :)

    Tell Jake E Lee what's up.

    I think tortoise shell looks the best on vintage white!

    Definitely mint for the vintage look. Might need aged knobs and pickup covers though.

    +1 for gold. Gold and vintage white is beyond classy.
