    It's decided, the white pearl is going to stay! The only thing I might do is install a 4-way switch at some point, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    I love it just the way it is.

    Pearloid white pick guard looks classy over that pink finish.

    :)

    I like it. I might have done aged pearl myself, but the white looks great

    Tortoise shell on shell pink or lake placid blue with a rosewood fretboard is about as hot as it gets.

    It's beautiful. Love that pickguard on the pink (looks lacy).

    Just wondering: Any parts "vintage?" - Did you write down what you put in it? - Did you already do the string intonation? [all the brass pieces are in the same place - Mine was a BEAR to set up but it was my first with that kind of bridge!] The pick guard kinda fits the vibe.

    My opinion.....replace with a White Pickguard, Let the Pink color be the Star

    Not a color I'd want, but the pickguard is perfect for it. Don't change it.

    I love this guitar, and the suggestion of a red switch tip for it is some kinda wonderful.

    I like pink, but my shirt is more of a salmon tint, with a little University of Tennessee orange ...

    I think a Tele to match would be awesome.... 16008030574925916881248139720648.jpg

    The only way I would change the PG is for something lacier.
    Or a Chastity Belt Motif
