    Finishing up a build, Fiesta Red P/J with rosewood board.
    Torn on the guard, thoughts?

    I would think you're going to get lots of votes for tort and black.

    In the spirit of not voting for the more common combinations, go with a neon green or bright blue :hyper::bassist:

    Edit: if no pickguard is an option I'd probably go with that

    No pickguard. I've never really been a fan of them.
