    White. Matches the pattern better. Black would clash IMO.

  8. eh, im sorry but im going against the poll, even though i voted white at first, because i found out fenders arctic white is a cream white, and wouldnt match, so i guess black it is....

    The Arctic White on my MIM Jazz is kind of a yellowish color, FYI. Black shouldn't look too bad, or you could always ditch the pickguard, Mr. Vicious.

    It's the same reason I chose black for my fender jazz reissue. Go for black.
