I hope this is in the correct forum. I'm putting together a Precision bass and am going for a black matte look. The body is a matte finish white and all the hardware has a black matte finish. I have a black pickguard that is shiny black and was wondering how you could give the black pickguard a matte finish. I'm assuming by sanding with some type of material but I don't want it to show any scratches. I guess I could buy a black matte finished pickguard but I would prefer to use the one that I have. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
