Question pickguard color hesitation

Hi guys

I'm hesitating on the pickguard color on my Kawai Aquarius.
My Aquarius had originally a white pickguard.
I changed to a black one (which is in aluminum) 2 years ago, but now I don't know: I'm hesitating between both colors:






Imagine black pickups and black hardware on the white pickguard.
I imagine placing a white plastic cover to "hide" the middle humbucker opening on the pickguard.

What would you guys choose?

Tahnks for your advices!
Matt

Re: pickguard color hesitation

I cant imagine why anyone would like the white.

If you think the black one is too doomy do something to the white one, swirl it or spray it

or paint it with eggs and cream and bury it in the garden for a month so it looks reliced.

Anyway I like the black one.

3 for black and 0 for white

On my side I'm pretty having made my decision as I already have a black Ibby, so I thought about the white...

Hey all

I've found another Aquarius which has been modified almost identically as mine (excepted the floating tremelo)
