    ..pickguards? Specifically, Fender American Standard Precisions with Maple boards. Curious to see what the modern burst looks like with gold ano and maple. I've seen lots of the obvious (57 two tones, vintage "yellow" bursts) but not too many of the newer ones with this combo. Thanks in advance for any pics.

    The only potential "problem" I see with that idea is that the maple boards on the Am. Stds. are pretty light in color. I think the gold anodized looks better when the maple has the vintage tint.

    V cool indeed! Thought about doing this myself to my sunburst MIA 09 but then i'd have to take the PG off everyone time i wanted to change the trussrod. Might still do if i use the same brand/gauge of strings for a while (experimenting between rounds and flats ATM)
