    My latest build !!! :)

    In an effort to use up some of the ridiculous amounts of parts I had lying about, I just finished this Tele.
    I only had to buy some machineheads, a pot, saddles and a switch tip to complete it.

    Not sure about the pickguard, but it might grow on me!

    Not sure about the pickguard either… 1-ply parchment? Otherwise lovely!

    I'm not wild about the guard, either (mint green?). But I love pink teles.

    Cool!
    I'm with you on the pickguard.
    Maybe tort, or white?

    Nah, parchment guard didn't fit. Anyway the whole point of this exercise was to use up spare parts so it stays white pearl!

    I'd play it! I like the pick guard. I have that one on my Tele. They look great in the sunlight or spotlights.

    Pickguard is fine! It has the "lingerie" vibe.

    All that axe needs is a stripper pole.

    Keep the pickguard.

    I think tortoiseshell would look good with pink, too...

    Me too. I'm glad the OP stuck with it. I'd leave it, maybe switch it to single ply white, and avoid mint and tortoise shell like the plague.
