    I was wondering if anyone here had made a pick guard out of a linoleum floor tile? They are self adhesive and you could apply shielding material very easy, wouldn't need to worry about scratches and you would have a huge selection of styles/colors.
    I wanted to give it a try, but wanted to see if anyone has had any success doing it as well.
     
  2. Yeah, but then you'd have to mop your bass once a week.


    But seriously, self-adhesive floor tile is kinda thick for a pick guard and may be hard to remove, and I've never seen any that I would want stuck on my bass.

    I wouldn't use the adhesive to put it on the bass. I would use the adhesive to attach the shielding material. Thickness wise the couple of tiles I bought (.99 each) are approximately the same thickness as the 3 ply pickguard I have now.
    Wounder if I would need to use Johnson's floor wax on it though?:confused:
