No one thinks this is a neat pickguard idea?
Yea, this is pretty damn cool!
Depends on how old one is I guess .
I can't remember whether I made any for slabs (probably did), but I did have a huge flamenco style LP PG on one of my acoustics back in the day.
I used one of those tiger-striped coloured vinyls for it .
Back in the 80's one could get crap LP's for the eqvivalent of .2€ or something like that, and the tiger striped were 1€ IIRC.
Nice! A friend of mine has a snack dish molded out of an old Neil Young album. Out of curiousity I just did a little googlin' and yep, you can buy them for about what a double album used to cost new.
Hey, that's probably the best use for a Neil Young album. At least you won't have to listen to it.

Hey, that didn't come from public Library? Did it? You know those Librarians play rough!
Kidding! That's cool!
Haha, I'm not sure! I saw it on a FB post, and thought you all would get a kick out of it, I had heard about acoustic guitar ones back in the day, but never had seen one, label-on on a bass. I kinda want to do this yet surely want to preserve the label. I like to "no screws" look.
The old 78's actually have a better tone.
I like it!
I want one!
Some time back there was a step by step tutorial on TB detailing the conversion of old albums into pickguards.
We'd all be well advised to use a Motown album with Jamerson playing on it.
I had to giggle at this. We used to do that to old records all the time when I was a kid. You just stick them in an oven. I don't remember the temp or time, but they come out looking like chip bowls.
Whatever it takes to increase one's funk quotient...
That's cool and all, but I dont have a turn table that could fit a jazz body...
^^^ LOL! I know, what a pain...all that disassembly...
I'd like to see that!
I was contemplating sending a record to Warmoth with a trace of where I'd want it cut, as I don't have the 45° bits and templates...(pay full price for their trouble, of course)
