    I'm doing a refresh on my Fender FSR Tele Sea Foam Pearl. It is HH now, but I'm going to put a Strat neck pickup in and PAF Master humbucker at the bridge.

    I've narrowed down to a group of color choices and of these I have three that I like quite a bit, and I haven't made my final decision yet. I'm curious which two you Tele folks think looks the best.

    First row are choices 1, 2, 3. Second row are choices 4, 5, 6.

    The multi-colored pick guard is the "Pin-Up" motif from Warmoth.

    If you have a clear favorite... click it in the poll and mention it in your reply.

    The first one with the plain black pickguard...it matches the black pickups and plastics.

    That color needs a single ply 5 screw guard.

    I’m a black guard kinda guy, but white guards look so good on sea foam green.

    Why 5- rather than 8-? And do you mean white?

    My taste runs with yours. I'm with black on almost every color. But Sea Foam Pearl does go well with very light (or white).

    I tried white, but it was too stark looking for me. Then I decided MINT was a nice compromise - nice and light, but not stark white.

    The mint would look great. I voted for 3 & 6.

    One and three are my faves. There's a good chance I will be going with the MINT - #3

    1 (by a mile), and then 3.

    All the others are straight-up hideous to me.

    I like 6 the best, then number 1 second.

    The cream with the mint looks best to me. JMO:)

    You must have known this will be all over the board.

    In no particular order, 6 and 1 for me. The others are nice - but I tend to go for clean lines where the body is coloured, rather than natural.

    unfortunately, for me, NONE , in no particular order. I'm sure they are all nice guitars though, I just don't do pastel colors, for anything !

    .

    1 or 3, but get a chromed plastic trim ring for the humbucker.
