Spalted Maple Stratocaster & Telecaster

Been working on a few Stratocasters & Tele - all with a 1 piece mahogany body and spalted maple tops - here are some pics:

They both have matching mahogany necks in the traditional pre-CBS headstock shape with ebony fingerboards & abalone dot markers. The telecaster has no stain on it yet - thats why it still looks "natural". I am hoping the mahogany adds some of its tonal characteristics (it's certainly added it's weight) I have not decided on pickups as yet - possibly a Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Pickup Set for the Strat or something by Lindy Fralin. Any idea's on the pickguard style would be appreciated!
