Need to get a pick guard for a black Tele and confused on what color to go with. I thought mint green was sort of an off-white but in the photos I've seen it looks more green.







The pic of the Tele looks more white whereas the Strat pic looks more green.

Any thoughts? Thanks

The mint green on my strat is more like the darker one. Perhaps not quite as dark as that one. It could be the photo but it's more than just off white.

Both my strat and the tele here are mint green

Beautiful collection. Yeah, the Strat is really minty whereas the Tele is just a little bit. I'm still undecided.

I prefer red on a black Tele.... like Wilko Johnson's (Doctor Feelgood)

Ha... nice.

Wilko played black on black before he put the red one on it:
