    Needed a change, new attitude. Called my hairdresser. He recommended a new pickguard.

    What’d y’all think? How’s it sound now? It looks like I’m meditating in front of it. I’m actually worshiping it.

    I'm normally not one for that kind of thing, but the black with maple fretboard just works with that look. But now you need a new strap that matches!

    No, these days neck pickups come with the reflections painted in. Mine is reliced.

    It's ok. I get routinely chased out of my own threads. This one will be no different.

    Nope. Specter. My dadcave studio is haunted. That's how I got it so cheap. It randomly appears. I call it the Crying Whatizitman. It's a faith promoting miracle!

    Gotta admit I was totally ready to not like it, but it’s kinda cool.

    The proper answer is "Mmm... Not the most flattering on you."

    This, in addition to only making very small and inexpensive gear purchases (hence the pickguard) is why I'm still married.

    Looks good to me, I did the same thing to my black MIM w/White Pickguard, except I switched it to a Red Tortoise guard. I definitely debated going with a sparkly red or green guard.

    White pickguard on black looks too much like this to me:

    And that is not a look that I think fits a Telecaster if Telecasters are supposed to be dirty back room brawler type electric guitars.
