This is a friendly poll for color ideas for my next project. All choices are considered but some feedback is always nice. Thanks. Cool

Which color would best fit a Telecaster with a white or tortoise shell pickguard?

P.S. "Other?" would be appreciated by a color suggestion.

Call me boring, but I think a black body & ebony fretboard with the tortise pickguard would look really cool. I've always been a sucker for black.

Have fun!

Well, the neck I have is Birdeye maple. Black is a nice choice but I'm not that big on it for this one. Sorry.

LPB, Green - Seafoam or Surf, CAR, or Gold Top Gold with the white or pearl white guard. Of course, these are my choices for my next build!

If you go with a tortoise shell guard, white works best.

I sure liked that Inca Silver Strat picture some one posted as well.

You're gonna hate me for this, but I'll second (or is it third?) the CAR vote, especially with a Birdseye Maple neck. Only thing is I'd go with a plain ol' white p/g. I love CAR Tele's. What about 2 color burst? That'd be pretty cool, too.

Basic Black, White, & Maple is a good one too. The "Tuxedo" look.

I second the tuxedo look. . .although I've always wanted to try a black beuty tele. black with black guard and gold hardware.

but nothing says "I'm gonna let the music do my talking" like a straight forward black and white tele. mmmmm beeeutiful Very Happy
