    ...if I change my mind tomorrow, I'll still like five hole pickguards and body-mounted neck pickups, because they make the most sense.

    I'm currently looking for some old grandma wallpaper to go under a clear guard.

    I think making wallpaper out of old grandmas is morally wrong - also gorilla glue is a scandalous waste of those gentle giants

    Clear guards are fun! I put a postcard from an old Mexican movie under mine. [​IMG]

    They both look nice but I much prefer the mint.

    I like red Tortoise on a white guitar and a Rosewood fingerboard.
    Looked one up on WD Music and boy are they expensive these days.

    I've been looking for a solid dark red bakelite guard, but no luck. For some reason I don't want a red tort guard on this one, even though I like red tort in general.

    I like mint with rosewood fingerboards only. I’d go for white on that one

    Looks great, regardless of scratch plate.
    Just to be subversive, I too prefer tortoise shell.
