Speaking specifically for cream in this case, but it seems to me that a huge spread of off-white colors have major variance in what they actually are. Trying to find a cream pickguard and cream cupcake knobs that match the cream of my SD pickups seems to be an exercise in both wasting money and amassing quite the box of plastics I'll likely never use. There has to be some sort of plastics industry color guidelines somewhere, right? Manufacturing keeps consolidating into larger and larger mega-factories for things like this it seems, so one would think you could source all matching colored parts as long as they came from the same production floor. I've had a harder time divining whose cream is parchment, parchment is eggshell, aged white is cream, eggshell is white, and mint is aged white than I think I've had trying to match seafoam and surf greens at this point. Sheesh.
