    The picture isnt very clear. What are you going for?
    Pearloid White, maybe? Flat black?

    Is that a Sage Green Metalic witha RW Fret board??? I have an MIM in SGM (maple neck) and I went with Aged Cream plastics and it looks AWESOME. I also really like aged/vintage white and Ivory.

    Just my preference... I would not buy a Strat with a humbucker in the bridge. I like the green / rosewood but can't tell much about the pickguard from the blurry pic.

    It looks like there is a pearloid guard on there now. I would recommend a plain white one.

    If that's a white pearl pg, I like it just like it is. With the clean plastics, it looks modern. Sort of like my black one in the pic.

    It looks like Agave Blue to me. I say go for a parchment pickguard.

    Fender mint green. Fenders pickguards aren't as green as the aftermarkets.

    Plain white or black are good matches for any metallic fender, especially single ply. It creates an immediate and striking contrast between the plain and the sparkly! :)

    That looks like an Agave Blue to me. I have one. This is what it looks like with a pearloid guard and a parchment guard. Search Agave Blue on the forum and you'll find plenty of pics!
