For fun, which one looks best to.... YOU?
#1 Stock brown tort:
#2 Red pearl:
#3 Gold anodized:
Stock tort. Or mint.
Stock by far.
But since this is the original and you are looking for a replacement, I guess this is not the answer you are waiting for
I did try mint, but it looked wrong
It looks butterscotch. Black or white guard?
To me it's a tie between #2 and #3.
I have that model of Jazzmaster, and I'm going with gold anodized or lacquered brown Bakelite. There is an off chance I might go with a dark brown tort, but it would be the stuff from Spitfire.
The red tort looks terrible IMO.
I prefer #1 the Stock Brown Tort. My 1966 Jazzmaster came with the more Reddish pickguard like #2, I've since replaced it with a Brown tort.
High contrast is the conventional wisdom for pick guards and it almost never fails to look good, but that gold on blond looks really cool to me
Indeed you are correct. I like all three. I don't dislike the brown, but I think mine is just a "boring" example -- it looks really fake/plastic up close. I need a bit more drama in my tort. But not enough to shell out big $$$ for a spitfire guard, pun intended.
With BSB, I'd tend towards black or white. However, the neck is fancier than most Fender necks and so I am not liking black or white.
The brown tort matches the fretboard, which kinda ties it all together; that's my fav. Does the gold actually match the tone of the finish as well in person as it does in the pic? Interesting. I wonder how a white MOP looking guard (matching the block inlays) would look -- might get you a white-guard vibe that is a little fancier to match the neck.
Love those aluminium gold guards, but not on that colour body. #1 by a landslide IMO.
I like the red pearl!
#1 looks surprisingly good with that yellow.
#3 is very classy.
Not sure which, but maybe lean 1% to #3
I'd go tort. With that color, I'd actually go plain white and maybe take the shine off with some steel wool.
#1 looks best. I'd be tempted to get something to match the inlays but that's just me.
