I think we can all agree with the general rule of thumb that tort guards make every finish look better. Well, almost... But what about silver flake? I just did a search for silver flake finish tortoise pickguard and found absolutely nothing. I know this is shocking to most of you, but perhaps there actually is a finish that tort cannot make look better? If anyone has a picture of such a combination, please submit for our examination and scrutiny. The Order of the Tort must be notified.
