My #1 Strat is in desperate need of a new pickguard. It is black with rosewood board, and currently has a 1-ply white guard with black pickups, knobs, and switch tip.
The current pickguard has been re-routed twice over the past 10 years to accomodate a bridge humbucker, and then a trembucker. It also has a hole in it where a toggle switch once was. In short, it's pretty ugly, which is a shame for my #1 guitar.
I have decided to go with a Terrapin guard to replace it. Here is their materials list:
The poll contains the materials I have narrowed it down to. I really like the white on black look, but I am also open to something fancier. It has to look good with the black pickups etc - I am not changing those.
Let me know what you think. Currently I'm leaning toward silver pearl, but I change my mind every couple of days.
