The Nashville is with a RW fretboard, so you can go either way; but with maple like yours on a red body, you need light, otherwise it cuts the guitar in half.
Maybe just get a bunch, and change them out every couple of weeks.
They're not that expensive, and it would be fun!
If it's an authentic-looking vintage one, then get the vintage mint pickguard. Yours has a modern bridge. So get the pearloid. It goes with the whole thing better.
Having a hard time imagining the mint on the guitar. Couldn't find any pics either. Anyone have one? May pick up a few and see what looks good in person.
I couldn't really get behind the Mint, ordered and cancelled and order for a tortoise and finally placed an order for a black. Shisssh!
Yes, that was tortoise shell on the Nashville. Here it is with the maple fretboard. The one I almost bought had the maple neck, but I can see that the color of the fretboard matters.
How about parchment (not so glaring as the white and kind of ties in the neck)?
Here is the mint green color combo

Good choice! BWB or Bakelite?
Not familiar with those terms
The neck color didn't really impact me so much. I found lots of pictures of each of the aforementioned colors with both maple and rosewood necks and they looked fine for me. It's a different kind of impact but not necessarily bad.
Yes it is.
BWB is black/white/black (so you see a white stripe around the perimeter of the guard. With the old school bakelite ones, it is just solid black (and less glossy).
BWB is really pronounced on this one:
ANd then here is Bakelite:
Not sure if this is actual Bakelite, but it's a Fender 52 reissue, so I am guessing it is supposed to look like Bakelite at least.
@etype - thanks for the explanation. All three of those look great with black. The one I got is not the BWB. Is the bottom one with 5 screws vintage?
They would lacquer bakelite so it would look smooth and shiny.
I try Pearloid on that color body.
I'd go with the pearl, but, frankly, like the one you have already better for the body colour.
