TORT!

All the way.

Mint. Even though it's not applicable in this case I really like the original Fender aesthetic.

Will the guitar have a matching headstock? for whatever reason I always think tort looks good on custom colors with plain headstocks and white looks good on custom colors with matching headstocks.

I have a hard time saying no to Spitfire, but my answer is mint. If it was any other tort, it would be a landslide. But my answer is still...

Can you post pics with the headstock showing? Just going with what I can see - faded fiesta red and rosewood fretboard - I say tort.
Blank.

I’m not a huge fan of red on tort, so I’m saying mint.
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Both look great, but mint goes better with matching headstocks.

Tort all the way, unless you switch to the pickup covers to not be darker than the mint guard.
great OSG deals with: ncarey13, skip.
great TGP deals with: drjoel, 12strings, Tim P, angrybandnerd, echobaseone, guitarpkr67, jcampbell331

I prefer this look, actually. Darker covers with a mint guard just looks right to me.

Another vote for mint.
You think you can't, you wish you could, I know you can, I wish you would. Slip inside this house as you pass by.
