    I recently purchased an Ovation EA40 ABG short scale. It has a pick guard on it. I don't think they ever came with a pick guard did they? Why would someone add a pick guard to a bass? Isn't a pick guard to protect the guitar from strumming?
    Thanks,

    What no replies? Not One? Come on, say something. I've wondered why electric basses have pick guards, for style? But an acoustic?

    Same reason, usually just for good looks, unless your a pick player like myself
