    I have been trying to find a replacement pickguard for my not quite standard sized Tokai P-Bass. I have tried all the major companies and they just do not fit.

    I am now looking into buying a blank and cutting my own. Do any of you have any experience with that and have any tips to offer? Is it difficult to do and what about getting a bevel around the edges?

    I did receive a Dremel type rotary tool set for Christmas that could be put to work.

  3. it ain't very hard to do one in wood, just let it take the time it needs. I have no idea how you would go about doing one in plastic though, ive heard you could use scrapers to get the edges cleen, but i really don't know if it works..
