No need to delay with responding... You are correct!
This miniature guitar set includes a representation of John's new
Rick which arrived in time for him to use in Miami, but not in time for their NY debut on Feb. 9th. So, he had to use his old original Rick which was painted black.
As you stated, the pick guard was gold—not white. But in a b&w TV world, the tremelo (tailpiece and whammy bar), and the knobs (gold and black) would have been the real kicker.
