So I was inspired by The Bass Company's pickguards, and thought about making a wooden guard for my MIM fender jazz. I picked up a piece of baltic birch 1/8" plywood to rough something out and get an idea of how it would look, planning to replace it with something more exotic (and higher quality) later. I think I like it as is! The color is close to the headstock color, I might try a darker oil on it to get it even closer. I hated the body color before (it was a sweet deal on a fretless mim), but I think I'm onto something here! What do you all think? All thoughts/comments appreciated!
