    The pickguard on my Trace Elliot T-Bass 5 is a little too thin in that the space between the pickguard and the strings is too much (especially at the G string). I'm looking to close the gap by getting a thicker pickguard made.

    I while ago I read somewhere on TB that there is a company that would take a template of my old pickguard and make up a new one for me but I can't remember the name.

    Does anyone know the name of this company?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Check out a guy named Bryan Boots, he does a lot of guards and sells on ebay. I have had him do several custom cut guards for me in all kinds of cool pearloids and such. Perfect work, great materials, and fast turnaround. Best part: Never cost me over $30.

    Thanks,
