  • What pickguard would look good on this tele?



    I'm not feelin' the black. I'm getting set to order one of these. I might actually convert it to an Esquire with a really cool pickup from one of those boutique winders.

    Anyway, white MOTS is out (hate it). What color did Fender ship Oly white teles with in the 60's? Was it plain white?

    Tortoise is a possibility.

              I'd say get the gold! It would be like the first Stratocaster:

                  i'd say the anodized gold, but only if you go all the way with it(gold bridge, control plate/knobs, tuners)

                    The one that's on it is fine. However, if you INSIST on changing it, I say go with the mint.

                      Go gold, that looks fantastic!

                      ..although you will have to resist changing all of the hardware too.

                          I like the stock one - if you must change it, the black or red tort guards picktured above would look good
