    Anyone know of any neckthrough basses that have pickguards? Any pics? I know NT doesn't exactly lend itself to having a PG.. but just wondering if anyone has ever seen one.

    I've got a WishBass turned ProjectBass that is neckthrough, but I'm going to slap a custom pickguard on (a variety of reasons - easiest/best looking solution to all of them is to use a pickguard).

    Most any Builder will work with you on a pickguard I would think. We have had a few Benavente's with pickguards that are removable. I've seen other's with Pickguards, just a matter of requesting it when you order and work out the idea you want with the company/dealer you order from.

    There is nothing about a neck-through that would prevent the use of a pick guard. For something like a Wish, you will probably need it custom shaped.
