Actually I'm a fan of those type of pickguards. I really like them with a candy color finish, especially on starts.
Given that I always get burned on mint green pickguards (they look great, subtle, online, but when they arrive they look like Dawn Of The Dead) a MOP pickguard is a great alternative to a "stock" look.
You win the clickbait title of the day award, but aside from that I dig the Tele.
I think a mint green pickguard would look cool in a Baskin-Robbins kind of way, but I like the pearloid also.
Here's mine, which I also just put together:
Looks fine to me too - goes well with the pink body. (Although single-ply satin finish black might work, for a 'rock n roll' look?)
I can find red Strat switch tips easily enough, but does anyone make a red Tele barrel tip?
If someone can point me in the right direction it shall be done!
you might need to get out more.
...sheesh, all y'all need to get out more...I mean, quarantine has kind warped me a little bit as well, but WTF?
Beautiful build! Great looking Tele - congrats!
I second the suggestion for a 1-ply parchment guard (would really push it over the top in my opinion), but the current one works too.
The Bigsby and the P90 along with that color are a great choice ...
Fender should copy your design ...
It's actually a P90-shaped Dynasonic (from Gabojo in Greece; bridge pickup is also a Dyna-like design, from Gemini Pickups).
BTW, what you can't see: this is a hollow/thinline body, the whole thing weighs only 6.4 lbs.
Looking at this thread made me wonder..... Anyone have a vintage shell pink Tele? I can't remember if I've ever seen one?
Sorry to go off track but, Roman how do you like the B-16 Bigsby? I'be been toying with the idea of a Bob Bain kinda knock off except for a mini hum or maybe a Gabojo Dynasonic!
This is the second B16-equipped Tele I built, I love it - trem action is so much nicer & softer than with a B5, more like with B3 or B6 on an archtop.
However, unlike a B5 & notched ashtray bridge combo, the feel and tone change a lot compared to a regular Tele - strings sit high above the body & feel more slinky, and the tone, with that shallow break angle & length of string behind the bridge, takes on some Gretsch-y or Jazzmaster-y qualities - a bit less punchy & immediate, more airy and jangly...
Ok, didn't wanna kidnap the thread, back to pink Teles!
Nothing wrong with that pick guard (says the guy with the same pattern). Love the pink and rosewood.
