    American Original 60’s P. The brown tort is what came from the factory. The red tort is a gorgeous celluloid guard I bought. Not sure which I like more.

    no endorsements yet...Are you listening Spector, DR, GK, Line6?
    Neither. B/C/B would look killer.
    Rock on.

    Never. I’m a tort guy all day. Unless it’s a 50’s P. Then gold anodized is cool.

    Then stick with the brown. The red hurts my eyes ;-)
    Rock on.

    Red tort, but blue pearl is nice, too.

    Not a big fan of pearloid guards. They remind me of cheesy 90’s country music videos.

    I agree with you, I'm not much on black PG's except on a few colors.
    I also don't like pearl except on a few colors.
    BUT... @gsgbass's black pearl really looks good.

    Out of your choices, I voted brown. I'm with @bass40hz, that red hurts me as well.

    I like black on darker sunburst. Or on a white and maple P. I haven’t had much luck with pearloid but have seen some winners.

    That looks really good! It accents the blocks well.

    I like the red guard a lot!

    Can you tell me where you purchased it from?

    I like that red tort, if the brown had a bit more color to it I'd prob say the brown, but I do like the contrast on the red vs blue. Def. tort fan here...
