Hmmm...somebody said, "Black is beautiful."
It will look good with so many colours, but I'd go for black.
Among the classics you can't make a bad choice.
Yeah, the Peavey will take a custom guard... regular fender won't fit without modification. I like the looks of Tommyboy's white and black tele's. Do you think solid black, or black/white/black?
Black - or Black Abalone, like this:
3 ply b/w/b gets my vote. It just says class instead of classic. Classic is so over done that it is becoming the norm instead of something special. Kind of like the whole '52 butterscotch and black guard thing. It's like a bung hole, everybody's got one.
Unless you're looking at it from the side, black is black, quack!
Some of the words used to describe "classic" are "serving as a standard of excellence", "traditional" and "enduring". How do you think something becomes a classic? By being over-done!
We've got 2 white teles .My son had a white p/g on his affinity, he put on a mint green, My white p/g was too white,so I tried too stain it to look like the maple neck. It's ok ,but I think I'll get a parchment p/g for it
I go for mint green or black. Mint green looks great on Black guitars, if anybody is chasing that tail.
Brown, custom tooled leather.
Now, send me that guitar!
White on white is aces. Keep it as it is.
That white looks great. I'd go with white for sure, unless you can get a paisley one. Then again, I love paisley so muc I'd wear a paisley mask if I could find one
I did buy a Telecaster Standard (MIM) last year (maple neck), and I decided to get the arctic white color. It came with a white (actually called "parchment") pickguard, which looks quite good.
But I wanted to try something else, just for the fun of it. I did get a Tortoise pickguard first (original Fender), but the color/structure on the one I received didn't convince me, so I took it back.
Decided to try a black one (3-ply, also original Fender) and put it on. At first (before I put it on), I couldn't get too excited about the combination (in my mind). But after I put it on, I thought it looks really nice. The black pickguard nicely picks ups the block dots on the neck and the black switch and bridge pickup. A nice combination, I think.
