    White switch tip. ; ) This one is so crazy, I want the board to be the judge, keep the stock black one, or go with the mod to white?

    We need to see a picture of the guitar to make a choice.

    Can we see the rest of the guitar? Otherwise I'm voting black just because I like black.

    Get one to match the body.
    I have a silver sparkle tele and found a seller on eBay that made me a silver sparkle switch tip.

    Whichever color, get the Glendale one...with a set screw. So you don’t have to chase it every other set.

    Here's my most extreme tele mod yet. It started as a tele and after making all the mods I wanted here is how it ended up. Oops, I guess Leo mostly beat me to that 65 years ago.

    99 out of 100 times I would say black, but this is the 1% one. The white just works with that color.

    Can you upload some vids to youtube of you playing with both tips, so we can determine how this affects tone? Preferably shot on your cellphone?
