I would add parchment to the mix. I love mint green too, but they are often too green and not subtle enough for me.

Aged white if you can find it. The mint green is pretty cool, but a nicely aged-to-almost-cream scratch plate may be the right aesthetic for an aged fiesta red. The bright white is wrong, however, and jars.
Until the very end of 1964 (and occasionally into early '65) pickguards were green.

Another vote for Parchment. Otherwise out of your examples I like the mint green best if it is actually that color. As was pointed out, mint can vary tremendously. Parchment would be my choice if it was my guitar

I’m about to do a Fiesta Red build (Warmoth) and will choose parchment. Like someone else mentioned, the period-correct mint green guard just looks too green from the many pics I’ve seen from newer manufacturers.

Mint green, then white. Would!


Nothing wrong with the other two, but to me they become the emphasis and detract from the Fiesta Red. Wouldn't!
