Pre - NGD - Road Worn Strat

Post: # 1416015Post lorez »

Just ordered this Image

due to arrive just before my 50th birthday

thinking I need to switch the guard, pickup covers and knobs as they look to clean.

Heel looks wrong for a Tele neck. Just a strat neck with a tele headstock I think.

more than likely. Its a cheaper version of a custom shop guitar called the mischief maker

so the guard, knobs, etc look to white so question for you all. Mint or anodised pickguard? Aged knobs, pickup covers, etc or just keep it white?

Well done Chris, I bet the neck plays like silk.

I think I’d go mint guard and I get what you are saying about the other parts looking too clean. Might look different again when you get hold of it though.

I'm a sucker for mint guards (I've got them on 4 out of 6 guitars), so I would go with that. And I think if you were to do that, the contrast against the white looks really good. I tried out some aged white knobs on my Strat the other day and I much prefer the white of the pickups in comparison:

the mint guard looks great on that Thom. I'm very partial to the mint guards as well but wondered about a change.
