    Hi all I've bought some pickguards and can't decide what looks better so what do you guys think! The black one is the original one the other two are pearloid white and pearloid black which really looks grey/blue! Also I'm thinking about a tort guard as well. Or maybe you have other colours that you think will look good! I appreciate all the input guys cheers...

    On a 3TSB, I think Tort looks sharp.

    Here's a better pic of the black pearloid one! It's the one that's on my guitar ATM but I'm not sure it's doing any think for me. Reminds me of a bowling ball lol

    I think you may be on to something! The white knobs and PUPs covers look a little to much I think, but another part of me kinda likes it.
    Cheers mate

    If I was to get new covers and knobs would you guys buy only real Fender products or is there somewhere that sells quality aftermarket ones?
