Swirled pickguard on a 7vsbl

Need your opinions guys...........

I'm thinking about getting a swirled pickguard for my 7vsbl. I might leave the pickups white, or I might change them to a different color also (blue? chrome?).......

What colors in the swirl do you think would look good with the sparkle blue body?

Re: Swirled pickguard on a 7vsbl

I personally wouldnt change it, but I just love how the sparkle blues look, and I wouldnt change a perfectly good guitar, let alone a 7vsbl.
If I was going to put a swirled one though, I would go for a white/silver/blue marble swirl kinda thing.
Also if you really just want to change the pickguard I might look at a chrome one, love those

hmm idk about a chrome pickguard (imo neways).... hmm i think if u did that white/silver/blue marble swirl, chrome evos would compliment the pickguard and the rest of the guitar nicely

Black goes really good with blue. I've tested a couple of swirl color schemes and had awesome results with black and blue. The black thins out in areas giving a grey tone as well adding a great amount of depth to the colors overall.

If you are unsatisfied with the white pickguard, don't change it... give the guitar to me, I'd be pretty satisfied with it!
As said above, that JEM is classy!

Any other ideas?

Id actually have to agree with the no go on the chrome after seeing it actually on the guitar.... it looked good in my head!

Id go for a marble black/blue/silver with the chrome pups. Dont do anything with colors too far from the color of the guitar, could potentially completely ruin the look.

If anything I would put a VWH guard on it, but I don't think it needs a thing. Leave it so as not to devalue it.

Leave it! It is a VSBL, one of the coolest JEMs.

If you really want to change the look, I'd get a loaded pick guard and completely change it. That way you can put it back to original if you wish.
