    I'm looking for Kirn "Tele's" with white pickguards......anyone have pics?
    Pinecasters with white guards would work as well.

    I've searched and just not finding many.

    heres a quick and dirty photoshop of mine if it helps....

    literally just an invert color change so rest assured knowing mr kirn could certainly build a much better example...

    p.s. I think they look better as intended with a black guard

    I'm a big fan of white pick guards. One of my favorite Kirn's is in his video section (orange with white PG):

    I am trying to make up my mind between that orange/white and a late 50s white style.

    I guess that lack of white guards says something.

    Some exceptionally stunning Tele's above.......drool worthy!

    Order a Kirn with a black guard. Buy a separate white pickguard for $15. Try both and keep whichever you like best. Or go back and forth whenever the mood strikes.
