    I've been thinking about getting a clear pickguard for my Stingray 5, but I'm wondering how it would look. So I'd like to see pictures of your basses with clear pickguards!

    Is yours a Stingray 5 with the 5 way selector switch, or the Stingray 5 with an oval scratchplate?

    I think the former look terrible when you can see all the electronics (like in the above picture that Killed By Death just posted).

    Peace,

    Rob.

    I recently took the pickguard off of my Stingray HS. I actually kind of liked the look. I've considered putting on a clear pickguard as well. That phantom coil under the pickguard would really mess with people.

    Dano Longhorn.jpg This new Dano Longhorn isn't mine, but I have one just like it... Not much of a pick guard, but for a clear one? It's all I've got...:thumbsup:

    I got a clear guard for my Neptune Blue Bongo because I thought it was a waste to hide the mahogany grain behind a black guard. I still like the clear look but went back to the black guard after a few months.

  12. Are you guys making or buying these? If you're making them, where are you getting the material? If you're buying who and where from? I want one for my ATK.

    Depending if there is a plastics supply company where you live - raw stock can be bought. In SF we have Tap Plastic. Most of the time I can buy a piece of cut-off stock for cheap. For ready made, there's a few on-line companies that make custom order pg's.

    I bought mine from Pickguard Heaven. Easy to order and they did a great job.
