    Is it possible to find a paickguard for a yamaha RBX 260?? I had a cool idea.. My bass is blue and i think it might look pretty sharp with a red or cream coloured guard. the problem is havent been ablt to track any down. If anyone could enlighten me as to some places to look i would be very happy.

    Thanks

  2. If they don't make it you can send them a tracing - they can make anything.

    Allen is right. I know that WD will cut any pickguard you want as long as you send them a tracing.

    cool. thanks guys.. one more question. What should I keep in mind while making one of these tracings?
     
  5. Ever think of making one youself?It's not too hard if you have a router, just make a template from baltic birch plywood and use a tracer bit and your done.Pretty simple stuff if you have any woodworking ability.

    I don't know - but they do have a pretty good readme on how to make a tracing to send them.

  7. I only only skimmed the instructions, but it seems all you have to do is take the pickguard off and trace it on a piece of paper
