Better-looking pickguard for my Jazz Deluxe?

    I just bought a black Fender Jazz Deluxe with a 3-ply white pickguard. I've never been a fan of the "tuxedo" look so I am open to suggestions on different pickguards. I was thinking maybe a black pearl or red tortoise (got a black 62 Reissue P-bass with the red tortoise that looks sharp). Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    I agree with the black pearl or the shell. Although, aged pearl or rosewood would be pretty cool, too.

    Tort, it works with almost any color.

    A 3-ply black pickguard, with white in the middle would be sharp and mirror is always cool to me, especially with white or black.

    Abolone would be really cool, too.
