finally got my custom jaguar:





The custom color's quite tricky. Originally it was intended to be dark sherwood green but it ended up being sherwood green metallic / ocean turquoise metallic. The color changes depending on the lighting & angle of view. At certain points it looks green, blue, aquamarine and even inca silver.

daytime:


night:



everything's perfect except for one thing - the pickguard won't fit!!! (kids beware of Eden)


Can I get your opinion on this?

I'm planning on changing it with a custom pickguard w/ these color options:
1.) black - the chrome plates and PUP covers will be emphasized


2.) mint- classic look (strat captures actual color)


3.) gold - w/ Deimel color contrast and appeal

there's also a part of me that wants to keep it as it is

Mint or black would work equally well due to the chrome pickup covers, and it's rare I'd choose a black pickguard over gold ano on a Jaguar or Jazzmaster... if the covers were white I'd say gold, if you could get mint green covers I'd say go all mint, but black seems like the easiest solution here.
I'm not particularly keen on that blue one because it clashes with the body colour and chrome plates to me, too loud/vibrantly blue. That material might have looked great on your Super Sonic though.

I actually think it looks awesome with the blue pickguard. Is there no way of sorting out one that fits correctly?

Also, I keep thinking of this every time I see the title:

yeah I'm also starting to love the unusual cyan pickguard as well. I'm thinking about creating some accents on the pickguard to cover the issue

Pavement! yesss! ;D

I made a decision to use what I have right now. I can always upgrade in the future. Since the jag has all those modern spec. upgrades, I think it's just proper to have a modern look:
