Why do you care what I think? If you like it, go for it? <big grin and a wink>

 

FWIW, I like it too. I think it compliments the color of the guitar very well.

 

Now if you can get some knobs that pick up one of the darker colors in the pickguard I think it will look even better.

i wonder how you make pickguards out of tortoise shells.....O:)

 

Well' date=' [i']colimodio[/i] did state it was imitation tortoise shell.

 

Don't know about the real stuff, but imitation tortoise shell is made from the unused parts left over when making Mock Turtle Soup
