Pickguard suggestions - Olympic pearl/maple neck

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....
