  1. Hello!

    I just thought I would share these photos. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

    Looks very cool.

    Does anyone know how much a real metal chromed pickguard would cost? $200? $300? I have only seen then custom made before so I would imagine they are quite expensive.
  11. Got mine on ebay about 3 years ago, its second hand and cost £49 + pnp.

    Looks nice, I have a Ric that came factory with one and really like the look.
  15. It sounded over the top, but once I saw it
    I realized it balanced the big bridge and rear pup bezel.
    Looks way better than I would have imagined.
