    Picked this up the other day to flip but while I was considering the purchase my wife said "I think I owe you some money anyway" so I was out the door like a shot. It's dead mint. The old guy that owned it bought it but didn't like the neck.

    Looks great, congrats.
    I'm digging the mint guard with the lpb and that tinted maple.

    The guard is white but I see a mint one in the future.

    I've not even played it other than to make sure it worked, left it on the bar in it's case. Tonight I'll drag it out. I hadn't noticed how mint the guard looks in the pics but it's bright white in person and will have to go.

    Yes it's a standard. My initial thought was a mint green guard but I've always loved cream pearl ones and this black looks pretty good too.

    Black guard looks WAY (!) better than that sparkly "thing".

    I bought a 2017 Am Std a couple of years ago but returned it. Hopefully I'll hold onto this one.

    Still haven't played the thing yet. Picked up a couple of Epi Les Pauls yesterday to tinker with. Just checked with Fender and the current pick guard is 3 ply parchment, not white. Same as the Am Std I had.
