    A stained glass window look with real leadlight would be unique and cool looking.

    Here's some views to guide your thinking, with black, parchment, brown tort and red tort. Personally I like the brown tort the best, the parchment the least.

    First thing I thought of was tortoise, but looking at pics I like the black too.

    I don't know if you could find something to match that yellow streak in the wood, but that's what I would do.

    Black might be the only thing that will work on that body. White would "cheapen" the look, tortoise would look too busy, as the body itself already has a lot going on.

    Thank you all for your considered responses, and special thanks to TeleTucson for the mock-ups!

    And yes, DaveTone, opinions are like artichokes because not everyone likes them! :D

    Leaning towards the brown tort but neck on would lead me to a more firm decision.

    Beaut!

    First thought was black... after seeing the sample photos, I'd definitely go for no guard (or clear). That streak on the lower horn is just too pretty to cover.

    A mock up of a cleaver, for a cabronita style abbreviated guard, would be kinda clever and complete the cutting board/chopping block theme . Gimmicky yeah, but some people like that kind of thing

    Remember the neck will change the whole look/scale.

    Red tort or brown tort if maple

    Those or possibly black if rosewood.

    I don't know if it's just me, but each time I see the dark pickguards on that cedar background, I see a raccoon face.

    Black, but three-, not one-ply.
