Black will accent the dot markers and the headstock logo and as well as allow the blue body to pop more. White softens the blue. If you leave the knobs and tremolo bar tip white they will work with the pick up covers to contrast the black. If you use black 3 ply pick guard with white centre (black,white,black)that line will work to accent the knobs, pick up covers etc. That blue is a great colour so make stand out.

There is a smoke or grayish pearloid color that I think would go well.

Holoflash.


No, seriously, go with the cleanest white possible imo.

Tort could be interesting, but white and lake placid blue are gorgeous together.

Also, them some hot pups.

I think the tortoise looks great with a dark neck but not sold on it with the maple neck.  Same with the black.  Black makes more sense to me with a dark neck.
Leaning heavily toward the white.  Perloid might be a bit too fancy pants.  White is currently on there which may be influencing me...it looks good:)

I'd go with white personally.

Or tortoise close second.

Definitely not white pearloid though (a little too fancy schmancy for my tastes).

To bad everything is routed for a pickguard already, otherwise I'd say dispense with the pickguard entirely. Since that is not an option, white seems fine with this color.
