Nah, sorry the yellow doesn't look that great with the pearliod. Black guards on both much better.

I like the original way.
Try the original way with Yellow Pups in the MYE and White pups in the while guitar would do the trick!

I like the black pickguard on the white RG but not digging the white pickguard on the yellow.

I like the white pickguard on the MYE. Has an early 90's RG look to it.

Re: Pickguard swap....

I actually dig them--maybe because they're just different.
The white one has a Jake E Lee vibe....

Re: Pickguard swap....

I think the pick guard swap compliments the fretboard colours. Nice idea!

Re: Pickguard swap....

I like the MYE with the white guard. Seems like it needs white knobs and pickups too.

Re: Pickguard swap....

I like them both - the yellow looks jazzed up and the white kind of Jake E. Lee (per Alaskabat).
