Ok, got the pickguard ..It's a slightly aged "colored" white that I just had to matte down with some fine grit brushing. I really like the contrast between the shiney guitar and the matte guard. Strings are also on and I did a setup. Just waiting on headstock string guides from Sweetwater, then she's all done and ready for the beauty show (in her new G&G Fender case!). Here is a "sneak peek"!
