What pickup cover color would go well with these two colors coming together? I'll be using a maple neck and gold hardware

When it comes to classic strat bursts, I really love the tortoise shell guards. Personally I've never seen a red one on a tobacco style finish, but I'm sure with the right shade it would look incredible. As for the pickups, I would say black for an 80s look, or a cream for a vintage look. For a brand new modern look, go for white. That would give it an incredible unique vibe. You can even put red pickup covers on there to make it look EPIC. red covers on red guard would look crazy awesome in my mind.

I think I'd go with a cream/vintage white or possibly black myself. You definitely don't want an odd color.

How about shiny gold plastics to match the hardware?
