Hi All, This is a new pickguard color that WD just released. I needed a new 'guard for my Sterling, so I took the plunge. It's a really cool material--very "deep" to look at, with a silver base layer and then several clear paisley "layers" that give a much more "3D" effect than I was expecting. Also, due to the layers, it's not your typical white/black/white on the edge--you really just see white. I'm nuts about it. It may not be your thing--and that's cool, too. With a TB membership discount you can take you pick and still save an extra 10%!
