    I'm trying to replicate this look here. I'm not great with shades of colors that are close together - especially greens. Can anyone help me identify this color combo?

    Also is fender still the best source for a nice light green Pickguard. I don't want anything too green a la "pistachio ice cream"

    Probably mint green guard and parchment pickup covers and knobs.

    Its Fender Mint green with either Parchment or aged white most likely knobs and pickup covers. Don't buy anyone else's mint green, too green

    It's an 'aged' Fender mint green pickguard. They added a tiny bit of yellow to make it look like it's old. As RG995TT said, the best mint green pickguard is made by fender. The others don't look right.

    I did the same combo recently on my strat. It was aged white covers/knobs and mint green pick guard. All were fender parts.

    That's what it looks like to me too. Great combination.

    I know everyone said Fender - but I picked up an aged mint one from Rocketfire. Saved me a step in having to wetsand and age it myself.

    I think I'll go with parchment and aged them a little if I want them darker. Thanks everyone.
