    I have to say that some of the classiest tort is on some of the cheesiest guitars.

    I had a torty guard on this one, that I no longer have.

    My OCD makes me swap between authentic white and faux tortoise quite a lot but she is currently wearing her plastic shell (circa '95 MIJ 60's Custom, with Fender '51 Nocaster PU's)

    Of course, these days we should be using real tortoiseshell, because the faux plastic ones will not be good for our oceans, after the sea levels rise and sweep our Tele's away. Help, I'm stuck between Greta Thunberg and Richard Attenborough.

    Ah, another Whiteguard Strat owner. Lovely things! Trouble is, you can't put a tortoiseshell pickguard on it, because of trade description issues!
