protecting a painted pickguard

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Oct 31, 2003.


  1. i had my pickguard painted by a friend and have added about 5 coats of polyurithane (sp) but the paint still can be scratched off with ease. What can i use to cover this awesome looking egg?
     
  2. i dont but youd be surprised how much damage can be done from just from general fingering and slapping... :D
     
  3. That's the reason most people don't paint their pick guards in the first place.

    Not very practicle!

    You wait a month for the clear gloss to cure, after that it should be decently scratchproof.

    Before you paint the PG you may want to scuff up the PG so the paint will stick.
