Perfect!

The parchment looks better with the binding IMO. Besides, by the time Fender was binding the necks, the minty celluloid guards had been phased out.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of anachronistic combos (like mint with blocks or binding, or gold guards on target burst 3TS). The parchment suits the binding both in terms of coordinating and also for making sense as a reissue. It looks great!

That one with mint still looks amazing, and I never tire of mint on Fenders of the blue-green persuasion, but that parchment is just perfect.
