The pick-guard fits perfectly as expected. The edges were really sharp so I smoothed them with fine sandpaper. As to the color, I notice that Gibson's cream color plastic parts (pup rings, binding, etc.) have a lot of variations, some a little pinkish, some not. So this color may or may not match perfectly but I guess the originals were the same. I've seen true historics where the P/G was a slightly different cream color than the pup rings.
