FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Telecasters / Suggest a new pickguard color

I love my 1st ever Tele - a MIA Channel Bound, Dakota Red, rosewood finger board. BTW, I want my 2nd Tele.

The stock parchment pickguard is kinda bland. I've looked at various pickguard colors but cannot decide what to order.

What color would go well for my Tele?

Nothing but White or Black for any Tele.

Tortoise shell or black would look good.

A great way to get an idea of what will look good is to use the Warmoth "Guitar Builder".

It takes quite a few clicks to get to where you want, but you can basically get to a point where you have a Dakota Red Tele body, then add a pickguard and can try out different ply's & colours etc.

I reckon a Vintage Pearl pearloid would look SWEET on your guitar!

edit to add: Or White Pearl with 4 ply!

Have a play & see what you think.

build yer own

I didn't know about "Guitar Builder." It's an awesome feature and will fuel my GAS!

A gold anodized guard would look pretty sharp on Dakota Red.

Peegoo has the answer, if you're not satisfied with the stock guard.

White moto looks good on Dakota Red guitars.

Easier than Warmoth is simply do a google image search on possible color combos.
