I work with at least 1,000 B&W images per week and the guides are hard to spot. I really would love to be able to change the color of the guides to make my task easy.

What color would you like?  Gray isn't working...

Thanks for the great idea, Guillermo!

I'll change your post to an Idea so it gets logged as a feature request.

Thanks, you guys :) Since the guides are gray, working with gray images the guides are very hard to spot... I believe yellow, orange, blue, could be nice :)

How about also giving us the ability to change the color of the pins, too? They’re hard to find on a b&w image... and hitting “H” repeatedly is not an acceptable answer.

See this bug report for an issue that's possibly related: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-classic-crop-overlay .  LR 7 introduced a bug where the crop overlay can be very hard to read with the GPU enabled.

Yep, sometimes it is also acting like that. I hope sometime soon it gets fixed, so I can be more productive... Cheers!
