    I'm looking into buying a Jazzmaster and I'm having a hard time settling on a pickguard/body color combination. What are your favorite combinations for a Jazzmaster?

    For the old Ventures vibe... 3 tone Sunburst with a tortoise pickguard...
    I personally like my Squire J Mascis JM which is an Olympic white/creme body with a gold anodized pickguard

    I'd say Shell Pink with mint, LPB with mint or Burgundy Mist with mint.

    So many great choices.

    Shell pink and tort, although white + gold looks great too.

    Classic sunburst with tort for me. Candy Apple Red with matching headstock is also great.

    Check this out if you haven't already seen it. Mix and match any host of options to see what different Jazzmasters look like
