That's one of the nicest 'guards I've seen.

We're thinking metallic copper or bronze. Any thoughts?

That's cool too- any color in that range. The copper would be way vintage looking. That color is very dear to me because of my connection with Danelectros. You wouldn't want it shaded too dark, however, because it will lose the "pop factor". Dang it, Sheldon - you're making me question pink as the color choice for my SJ :wink:

I had a thought on the SJ headstocks- is it possible to have the flame cutout painted to match the body color? I think this would be a really nice custom touch.

My first choice was to paint the headstock face and leave the cutout natural, I hadn't even considered the opposite. I'll try and visualize that and/or do a test.

Is a pick guard of this material available separately and what is the asking price?

They can be. Since they are all custom fit, we'd have to oversize the neck cutout slightly to guarantee a drop fit. They run about $100 US.

My vote still goes for the tortoise on white, although that's an interesting matchup.
