So I posted this here because I figured y'all might know something about handmade (wooden) pickguards, and just about wood in general. I'm currently modding my Squier and I made a pickguard out of birch plywood. It's fine except that when I put the stain on, the bottom horn developed a little warp as shown in the pictures. The Real Question: Can I just screw the pickguard on and hope it evens out, does the wood flex enough? Maybe I'm making a big deal out of it, but I don't want to ruin the pickguard because I made it with entirely hand tools and I'm quite fond of it.
