    Mods, please move this if this is in the wrong form..

    Is it ok to spraypaint a pickguard?

    I hate my whitepickguard and would like a tortoise shell, but don't have $50 to blow, so I'm condsidering spraypainting it black
  2. yea i can't se why it wouldn't be ok.. might ne hard to get the paint to stick though.. if you sand the surface before you paint ut might stick better.
    if you hate the color of your pickgurd i'd say go for it. if it gets ugly after a while you could always do it again

    There actually was a post done on this not long ago I believe. Try a search?

    Yep, just make sure you sand it first so the paint sticks.
