I voted for Aged Pearl. Those are great on black or burst strats.

I did one of these:

Black Strat; Rosewood fretboard; tort pickguard; aged white (cream) pickup covers, knobs......I think that combination looks VERY classy!

But hey, just about all the choices look good on black....maybe that's why there are so damn many black Strats out there!

You're right about that! There are a lot of options that look good! I'm leaning in the parchment direction, but yes the tort looks classy!

How do you expect us to pick when you don't even have sample pics?

My 1974 Black Strat looks good with an aged mint guard. I sprayed RR clear on this in 2001. It aged real nicely...Dean
