I've got a 2011 US Deluxe Strat in Olympic Pearl with Maple neck. It's currently got the tortoiseshell guard on it but I think I fancy a change....
Any pickguard suggestions for an olympic pearl and maple necked strat? In case it helps, the knobs and pup covers aren't white, more like a creamy/off white colour.

May look well if you try to copy the cream of the knobs, etc. Parchment maybe ..

I kinda like the combo you have myself but also a cream type parchment would look good. One of the aged pearloid would look good too.
I have a honey blond american deluxe V neck that I removed the ugly red pickguard on and added an aged pearl with cream knobs/covers. Pearloid is not for everyone though. My neck and body are a little darker colored too I guess...

Is that it in your avatar?
Can you post a good pic of it? I love that combination that you currently have, but if I were considering a change, I'd consider black.
Simple, elegant, understated.

Tort wins. But maybe pearl. Parchment if you like the Jimmy look.

Your problem is that you already have the best one on there....

Black, tortoise or parchment pearloid (not cream)
