    Hey,

    I really want to get a hold of a custom pickguard for my Jazz V. I don't want a custom shape or anything, i just want it to have some words on it.

    I was thinking maybe a black guard with the words 'close your eyes and listen' in grey or white, probably grey. Either way, does anyone know where i could get ahold of something like this? I don't really want to do it myself because i want it to be subtle and well done, and i want to keep my old pickguard.

    Along with that, it's a MIM V pickguard which i cant seem to find anywhere normal anyways :scowl:

    I really hope something like this exists , i would love it. Thanks in advance for just reading this even if you have nothing to say.

    You need to find a company that does plastic engraving. Basically, the top layer of plastic is removed to reveal the plastic below (that is a different color).

    You also need to find a company that makes pickguards to order.

    Here's a company that does both: http://home.comcast.net/~pickguards/

    hahahaha those guys should really get a domain name, i'm reluctant to order from any company based at home.comcast.net!

    check trophies - plaque makers , they normally have laser engraving machines that can do that, i work with that but i doubt you live in florida.
    what about vinyl stickers? check on ebay, there is a lot of sellers that offer custom sticker at good prices, plus you dont have to change the pickguard
     
  5. +1 on trophy shops. They can also color in the engraving if the pg is single color.
