    My Peavey T-40 is going to need a new pickguard, do you guys think I should use a piece of sheet metal? I think it could look really cool.

    You should use a carbon fiber pickguard with a Type R sticker, that will make you play faster.
     
  7. Screw sheet metal, make it out of the hood of a car .

    Make a furry pickguard. Leopard print meshes with most any color.

    In all seriousness, I saw a green mirror pickguard that looked awesome in a "so-ugly-it's-cool" type of way.
     
  14. You could make one out of some black cloth and load it full of closepens and pins of angsty bands that you never listen too ..........oh and the anarchy thing.

    I saw a git in a magazine that had what appeared to be tatered bible verses glued to it, it actually looked cool.

    You would have to have some brass ones to play a instrument like that in the South.
     

  16. I saw a pic of the dude from Amen who had a guitar like that............I loved it and would play it infront of a baptist church! but then again Im retarded
