    I have a MIJ Jazz from the early 90's, seafoam. Has a white pickguard. The white pickguard looks bland to me but I can't really think of anything that would look better.

    Doesn't have any routs so the only thing I could think of is taking the PG off which looks nice. What color PG looks good on seafoam green?

    torts look nice, both brown and red. I would check out a cream pearloid, too.

    Yep, tort ( brown maybe ) would look excellent against seafoam green.

    I've seen tort, pearl, gold, and black, and they all looked good with seafoam. Mint tends to clash and parchment isn't much different than white.

    I'd say tort with rosewood, gold anodized with maple.
