What pickguard should I use on my cherry burst strat?

I've had this guitar for a couple years. I'm not super pleased with the black pickguard and red body contrast and want to switch out the pickguard. I'm torn on a couple of color options though. I was thinking of tortoise or white pearl but it's hard to imagine what they look like.

Link to my guitar here.

Suggestions would be much appreciated!

I think tortoise would be too busy and hard to match the right color, especially with the flames and burst.
I also think a white pearl might be busy if it’s regular white and it might be a stark color contrast.

My first thoughts were either an aged white or aged white pearl, as the yellowish tinting should blend subtly with the burst.

Best wishes to you for finding something that works for you!

Go to the Warmoth site and build a custom body. Put some paint on it and try the different pickguards they have available to see what direction tickles your fancy.

Pearloid or Aged Parchment for the win. Nice guitar. Tort is too busy and too close to body color.
