    I have an '05 MIM Standard in Agave Blue that will be getting some upgrades over the next few months. Here she is, fresh from Sam Ash (blew them out for $299):

    I'm planning to go with a mint green 'guard, and maybe white or aged white pups/knobs. If you have anything similar I'd like to see what your Strat looks like.

    Hard to see the mint there too, but you can tell by the contrast of the knobs and such. :AOK

    2000 American Stratocaster, ash body. Pickups are WCR RS, and I swapped in the mint green guard when I upgraded the pickups. I didn't feel like dismantling the whole assembly on the stock parchment guard.

    Knobs and covers are aged white. Close-up:

    Here's mine. The green tint doesn't show up too well in this shot but you can see it if you look close.

    Thanks for the pics, everybody! Looks like mint 'guard/aged white covers & knobs is the way to go.

    Did you paint the headstock or it was just a bad lightning?
