i've got an olympic white strat and think the look is killer, but i did vote for sea foam green because i always loved that look as well, and that color reminds me of a vintage instrument more than the white in my mind for some reason. can't go wrong with either tho. goodluck!

I had a blast working on this project. I hope you all enjoyed watching the Makeover process. It will be on its way tomorrow :yesway: ;)



Thanks again, Andy. This has been a great experience from start to finish. See what I did there?

Guard looks better on the offset than Strat IMO

Yeah, my '63 JM has an old Sonic Blue overspray, but has the original Olympic White still there and peeking through. As an Olympic White it has the original tort guard. I like that look too, especially on an offset...

I remember you posting that one a while ago! Awesome JM. I just love that '60s Fender tort. Actually, their pearloid was cool, too and I have yet to see any modern tort or pearl that looks as "vintage" as the real deal.

They definitely don't look the same as they used to. Seem to have gotten more brownish maybe?
