    Carbon Fiber is pretty slick...

    CARcarbon.

    Mirror is also pretty rad...

    CARDJAudere.

    Matte black puts focus on the CAR...

    DCP_6914.

    and then there's the very classy black/white/black gloss...

    Full.

    White pearloid, black/white/black, or possibly white/black checkerboard.

    I'd have to say the mirror. I don't know why, I'm more of a wood type of person myself.

    Plain black. Classy.

    Then again, I really dislike pearloid pickguards on anything.

    I say plain white for a p style guard.

    for a J style, probably either matte black or mirror
