Considering you're adding extra detail with the jag trem and tele plate I'd keep it simple and go for black pickguard with solid black pickup covers.

That could be cool! Smile Some Gibson vibe in the color that way.

Excellent. It would be funny to bolt it up and go as is. The pots would fit, at least.

Tremolo: Check
Bridge and Cups: Check
Pots: Check
Four Way Custom Tele Switch for Series Mod: Check
Tele Plate: Check
Black Speed Knobs: Check
Black Kill Switch: Check
Black Electrostatic Cup with Switchcraft Jack: Check
Jaguar Neck, Plate, Screws: Check
Pickguard Screws: Check
Classic Player Single Coil Pickups: Check
White Milk Paint: Check

All set and ready to roll once the body is finished! I am excited to:

A: Try the white milk paint as a white wash.
B: Hear what the high output Jaguar pickups sound in series as a humbucker. (Serioulsy add up those high outputs. They are almost like humbucker output already. It will melt walls.)
C: Just to PLAY this guitar. Nothing like it so I am excited to see what is like.
D: ALL OF THE ABOVE

Not as fun to look at as body work, but I got the control plate basically wired. Just needs to have pickups, jack, and grounds attached. Smile

Progress from Andrew. He had the idea that instead of doing Fender roundovers and contours to instead keep it mostly slab like a Junior would be, but do steeper roundovers where contours would be to give those two areas a bit more curve. I think it looks pretty awesome! The pictures are with a mint guard. Sounds like he is going to do a single ply white guard as well. PICTURES!

Hrmm. I'm not sure about that part of the pickguard where the neck pup is pretty much goes to the edge of the guard. Would probably look better if that curve were made bigger.

I sent Andrew a bad photoshop idea for him to look over. He thinks it would work better. Smile
