still undecided on the guard but getting closer. I had a vision of a Les Paul Tele so I thought the vintage cream would be best but I also thought the parchment would be awesome. now I'm really digging the black but have too many black pickguard guitars and the cream is looking good again. I'm torn. first picture is a paper template and the wining guard gets a trim to match it so I only want to trim once. thoughts and votes?
