    Hard to tell... Shade can vary from pg material to pg material.
    Sometimes they're are called vintage white if they have a bit of cream colour to them.

    Damn it... that darker one is the only 2 ply I found. I hate the black on 3 and 4 ply.
    Anyone else?

    well, genuine vintage fenders were 4 ply (pearloid/white/black/white) and i guess that my taste is the opposite of your's. i don't like anything but 4 ply ones. to me, the 2 and 3 ply ones look cheap.

    Thanks for the input, I took the 3 ply one. Thread can be closed.

    I can't hang with no cheap pick guards.
