    My first home build is near complete (nightmare! but I'll get to that later:oops:) It ended up too dark (Encore brown over Mahogany) to use my original idea of a cream guard so I went with single ply black. It's a much better fit with the dark rosewood board. I'm thinking (if I ever attempt this torture again) I'd go w/ a "flat-ish" red ala Fiesta and a maple board and use the cream guard. Any other ideas:?:

    Cream also goes really well with deep reds like Fender's "Midnight Wine".

    I think cream looks good on Walnut and Orange.
