    I have no preference, but I just realized les pauls look like cartoony narwhals, with the pickup selector being the eye and the neck being the horn.

              Off. The correct answer for any LP where the wood grain is showing is always off.

                          Practically speaking, I don't like the guards on a LP's. I tend to jack-wallop them until they break, leaving scars and screw holes. But there are those LP's that just don't look right without one.



                          All of that to say this, once you screw it on you are set for the life of ownership to having one on or deal with the scars...IMO leave it off.

                            I think either works on that guitar. It looks good
