    I'm planning on putting one on my olympic white strat...with cream pickups and knobs.

    Have one on the way thanks to a fellow forum member. Might try it on my white strat, although I'd planned it for another. Will post some pics up next week if I do.

    I think I saw a few in the post your strat thread...I'm sure they'll pop up here!

    I'd still prefer a slightly 'yellowed' or light parchment colored one.

    Mint Guard with Oly White Strat - - - - -> I can play:

    My Masterbuilt has a mint guard, the Oly white that once was is starting a little in the vintage white direction though.
    Olympic with a mint guard is a really awesome combination.

    Here are some pics:

    I'm thinking I want one for my 3 tone sunburst... I heard that's what they came with before Fender came out with the insanely bright white ones. Anybody know if that's true?

    Here's my Custom Shop relic . It came with the tortoise pg but I bought a mint one to put on it. I like the mint better. I'm thinking about putting the mint one on my Clapton though. :hmm:
