    Of the choices given, I picked 1, but I'd like a parchment, single-ply pickguard better with that maple fretboard and green guitar. And I'd go with the chrome PAF pickup cover on the humbucker.

    Yup, 5 hole parchment with the sea foam green. #6 is all I could stomach.

    six because cream pickups match the neck, black pups would add a thord color.

    I'm pretty much an old-school traditionalist. All my Fenders have a white pickguard (I've flirted with mint) except my 50's Road Worn Tele that has the stock black guard.

    That being said, something about No. 2 really looks right and elegant to me. For me, that's really taking a "walk on the wild side". ;) My second choice would be No. 1.

    Of the choices, #1.

    #4/5 is not going to age well. Baby, it's cold out there!

    I voted 1 and 3. The tan pickups and pictorial pickguards are visually too loud.

    Is there an option for none? I don't like the humbuckers in the bridge position. Also I like nickel covers on them when in the neck position. Sorry to be a pain but just being honest.

    6, but I'd put a cover on the bucker, and lose the pickup ring.

    I voted 3 & 6 but I'd like to see cream pickups with the black scratch plate.

    I voted for #3 and #6 - with my first choice being #6. Very unique combo w/cream and SeaFoam - I think it would look really cool. Good luck with your choice!

    3 or 6. Definitely a white guard but not sure about the black or tan pickups - id go chrome myself - but out of those two id pick number 3.
