White W/REd Pickguard

Anyone able to find an example of a white guitar with a red or any other color pickguard. I'm thinking about doing a white ax but want to see what some look like.

A little darker. Kinda looks like red mirror.

White pickup and knobs, though = yes indeed.

Re: White W/REd Pickguard

I do like it. I think white pups would look better and dot inlays or red fins(good luck finding those). I'm thinking about doing a RG550. I think it has a cool shred, virtuoso look to it.

DEESWIFT, can you reverse the colors, red body pearl white pick guard?

Re: White W/REd Pickguard

Wow, I think I like the red as much or more than the white!

I think the red with the red mirror pickguard would look good too.

Re: White W/REd Pickguard

I still like black best on a red body. Black/red/black 3 ply might be nice, you'd get a nice red pinstripe around the edge of the plate to compliment the body, but it'd be subtle. I wouldn't over-do the red body with a red pickguard as well, it'd need something to balance it out and calm it down (depending on the shade of red). Black would work best for my tastes, I think, but maybe I'd put red pickups in with black pole-pieces, plus a red Dimarzio Chopper in the middle position. Red switch tip and control knobs would complete the effect.

Like this but red not green:
