I know I'm going at this a bit bass ackwards but I've got some Fender Hot Noiseless pickups with Parchment covers and a Parchment pickguard. What color looks good with Parchment? I know I don't want to do a metallic color as it's been several years since I've done a refinish. Show me some pics fellas.

Shell Pink looks great with a parchment guard. When I get my tele finished, I'll post some pics.

Pretty much this. Cool

Not every color looks good with black, mint, or tort. But parchment is an off-white and works with everything.

Bright white is good too, but not after Labor Day. Laughing
