The Thinline Jazzmaster body from Dan (Deed_Poll) has finally cured after I've finished it in Sonic Blue Nitro and is now ready to be assembled

I know the colour is more on the blue or almost Daphne Blue side and not that anemic white-ish sonic blue like the VMJM for example... still - please help me decide which Pickguard + PU Cover Colour combo to go with :)


This is the Body

1.) White PG with White Covers

4.) Fender's AVRI Mint Guard with Cream Covers

5.) White Pearloid + White Covers
Image


6.) Tortoise with White Covers
Image


7.) Anodized Gold with Cream Pickup Covers

8.) J Mascis Squier "Gold"/Orange (2013 model)

And here are some pics with the neck - it's an AllParts JZRO finished in slightly tinted nitro... not too yellowish :

Wow! That looks lovely!
Both Mint options look stunning! And please use the White Bakelite knobs with it! They go great together!

While Tortoise looks killer on white, black and sunburst it is too busy on blue and green finishes for my taste.
The lighter anodized gold also looks great.

Is the Vibrato a Squier one? Or the standard after market part that can be found everywhere... I wonder if there are differences in them... I got an unbranded one like this on my Eastwood Sidejack Deluxe and it's quite alright... but I still couldn't compare it to a Mastery or AVRI - but my Japanese isn't that much greater...

That looks fantastic. I like the simplicity of white in this case.

And, because you don't have enough options listed...have you considered a black guard?

White/white or either of the mints. Or black.

They all look great but I'd go with gold. In theory the gold doesn't work on that color JM but in reality from seeing the pictures I'd say it works great.

I'd vote for either the mint guard or the JMJM orange guard. Lovely project!

I voted mint + cream, but the tort would look good with cream parts as well rather than the white as pictured.

My vote would be for white/white or tort/cream (not pictured).

Mint, full stop. Either pickup/knob color works, though I prefer cream.

Sorry, I voted pearloid thinking the PU would be cream, but this choice is not offered. :-[
So vote corrected to :

4.) Fender's AVRI Mint Guard with Cream Covers - but with white covers it's as good too.

By the way, nice body color... 8)

I love Sonic Blue on offsets!

White or mint guard, for my money.

Well, looking again and again at all the pictures, I finally join the majority :

3.) Mint Pickguard + Off-White Pickup Cover 8)

I think that if I had a project with Daphne Blue like this, it's what I would choose (to be honest, I have such a project... ;) )

I have a navy blue pick guard that I have been dying to see on a sonic blue body but I voted for mint/cream covers.

I've got mint on Sonic blue. It was white on blue before, but I think parchment might be even better than either.

Or even white sparkle.
