What's your preference? Fender these days seems to like combining a white single ply pickguard with cream coloured knobs and pickup covers. Recently I swapped out some covers: my CS70s strat had a (3 ply) cream guard and white covers, and my CP50s strat had a white guard and the rest was cream. While I was doing some work on both guitars, I swapped out some parts, and now the CS70s is all cream and the CP50s is all white. I'm trying to decide if I like the look. On the one hand, on the originals, the colour was never 100% consistent and the knobs were sometimes extremely white, and later on sometimes turned cream. The pickup covers often weren't even the same colour as the knobs! This inconsistency has a certain charm, just like the later mint green guards. On the other hand, I'm fairly certain that Leo Fender planned for everything to be the same shade of white when he designed the strat and ordered the parts. By having everything be white, it looks more like what Leo intended, but it looks almost 'too new'. But then again, the white/cream combo is almost clichée these days, I think it would look better if it wasn't quite as yellow. What's your preference?
