Normally I would vote for tort of some shade but today I'm thinking black looks pretty good. White pearl might also look good. Here's a pic of my old Melody Maker with a red tort guard to give you an idea what that would look like, I think it looks good with the small guard, too much body to cover on yours.
Tortoise, por favor.
I used a Rothco and Frost sheet, didn't look like their sample shot ( sample shot looked like the firey depths of hell) but still it's far better than any other tort samples I saw. It is pricey, but no where near Spitfire territory. Downside is I had to cut it out myself by hand, turned out ok though. I underlayed it with white glitter paper to get it to pop more.
Obsession with tort and seeing all the awful printed versions out there drove up the cost of my cheap project considerably
with that it would resemble one of those funky soviet era guitars. Certainly would be an arresting look.
as is, or white:
As is. But if I had to switch, I'd look at a mint green for a nice contrast.
Leave it as is, or change to white.
Tort fixations will do that to a person--I've owned a Spitfire. Selling it bought me a nice Nocturne pedal lol.
There's a bunch of styles of tort with R&F, some real cellulose ones as well IIRC. I bought this style because it's acrylic and won't warp. Good job on the hand shaping. I'm making patterns for my guards so I can route them, but I have to hand sand the pattern curves--sucks but the results are worth it.
As is looks fabulous !
Only MHO but........yuk!
That’s a darned good looking grain. Verrry nice!
Another vote for As Is.
This. As you can see from my current rig, I'm a fan of tortoise, and I think it would look _dope_ on that crimson body.
So pretty. Is that yours?
Yep, currently has a TVJ Starwood bridge and a Gabojo Dynasonic in P90 form on the neck...
I would have never thought those colors would work together, but that's lovely.
OP, as is. Is that a roasted neck?
