    Depends on the tone you are going for. A MOTS would sound richer with more complex harmonics.

    Purely for looks, black is more harmonious because it matches the black in the burst and the black pickup.

    White.... The contrast is eye catching.

    chrome! :D
    Chequer board! ;)

    They both look good, but my personal feeling, which is biased, is black, only because my sunburst tele has a black pickguard :)

    Because I know you are all dying of suspense, here is the final product: American Performer with double tapped humbucker, rosewood WD Music neck (from Stratosphere), Etsy decal and BLACK pickguard.

    Good pick. I much prefer black on a sunburst.

    I always switch my pickguards to black. So I say B.
