    I noticed that all these 335's with nice vintage cream binding always has a pick guard with white edges. To me this is a clash! I hate it. I would prefer the pick guard to have the exact same color as the binding on the guitar.

    Does anyone know where I can get a black 335 long pick guard with cream binding instead of white?

    Thank you!

    If it's a 335 rather than a 355 then it's a ply guard rather than bound. Montreux Guitars do very good looking relic guards for 335s that have the white ply darkened to a nice looking cream. If it's a 355 type guard with genuine binding it might have to be a custom job - early 355s where the guards have survived generally have yellowed binding on the guitar and rather white looking guards.

    Actually that's exactly what I do with Les Pauls. I am not a fan of pick guards on Les Pauls but I prefer them on 335's.
