    Either mint or white for sure

    Parchment would look great too.

    +1 for mint green! Sorry I'm definitely not a fan of pearloid pgs.

    Personally, because you have such a nice flamed top, I'd go with a plain (black or white) pickguard to accentuate those beautiful flames. And vice versa, if you have a solid colored top, I'd go with a more decorative pickguard to accentuate the contrast. I had it that way on my two Strats.

    Any color/pattern YOU like. There are so many differing opinions here on pickguards (which is good) that trying to determine which is "best" for your application will end up falling to your own decision anyway. Just don't use mint green!!!

    There's no doubt with the black your eye is drawn to the beautiful flame of the body more instantly and attentively.

    As I said it just wants really aged white covers and knobs ... ivory even.

    The black gives it more visual solidity for lack of a better expression.
