Need some opinions here. I am in the middle of changing the neck on my project strat and since it is apart I am re evaluating the pickguard and knobs.
Just wondering which would look better with this pickguard and strat
White knobs and switch tip and pickup covers or Black all round ???? Here's a pick to help visualize but only in white.

I'd say black. White looks like... ... I don't know. Like if these parts didn't really fit with the rest of the guitar... Well, black, definitely. Girl opinion here, wooo!! :wave:

I'd say go with black all around. I like the pickguard.:food-smiley-004:

I say white...only because I have all black with a white pearloid pickguard and if we jammed it would look weird! lol

But seriously all black does look killer and is not the norm.

I guess you're not going to be jamming with Paul. It would look too weird.:tongue:

I like white. Normal is ok by me. Black covers and white Guard is to much contrast,,,, or not.

Let us see when you've finished.

Well a Black PG sounds like a good idea but the cream pearloid one that is on it looks really good on the black, better in person then the pics. As for normal I got lots of that want something different .I'm going to try the black accessories and see what it looks like, and yes I'll follow up with pics. Thanks for the opinions, this is my blackie strat... bought in pieces and assembled. :food-smiley-004:

my favorite look for a strat is black body, pu cover and knobs and a black/white/black guard....and a 70's style large headstock with maple neck.

Sounds good, but my neck is rosewood, it is a 72 reissue neck (CIJ) the body is an american vintage 70's reissue (ash) and the pups are CS 69's. A multi cultural guitar.....:D

Ok so i went with the black, I had a bit of a delay waiting on tuners but it is finally together and set up.

It plays and sounds as I had hoped, great sound from the CS69's

It is the newest member to my Fender family...

The sunburst is a 68 reissue MIJ with Fralin Blues Specials and the Callaham Vintage Bridge package. The tele is a 67 with Texas tele pups and
the 4 way switch mod.
