I was wondering if other players find certain colour combinations of body and pickguard more attractive than others. This 1986 Squier had a white pickguard, not off white or cream but blinding white. So I toyed with the idea of swopping it out to black or red pearl. Black won out and now the guitar looks much better. A white pickguard on a black strat with amaple fingerboard looks pretty cool but a white pickguard on a black body with a rosewood fingerboard looks like all the cheap and nasty mass produced guitars you see everywhere. This is my ‘new look’ Squier!
