With all of the 'mint green' Strat pickguards around it occurred to me that I've never seen what would be considered a similarly aged 50's single ply 50's Strat pickguard. In fact all of the vintage[ and relic-d] 50's pickguards I've ever seen look relatively new, in any case not aged liked 'mint green' guards do. The only reproduction relic 50's pickguards I've seen are sort of cream colored- I've never seen an original which was similarly discolored. Was there something about the [Bakelite] 50's single ply pg that didn't age in the same ways as the 60's 3-ply 'mint green' guards did ? Can anyone post a picture of a vintage [ or relic-d ] Strat sporting a single ply 50's guard which has an worn/ aged appearance ?
