    You order a slab of wood, and take a cutting appliance of some sort and cut one out.

    I thought those wood pick ups were just a wood colourd cover.

    Are they really made out of wood?
  5. Try sites like pickguards.com and Chandler guitars. Anyone, really, that makes pickguards. For a (probably hefty) price, they could make you a wood pickguard. You are better off making your own if you can, or maybe even getting someone on talkbass to make one for you.

    Just covers.

    Make your own -- it'll be a lot faster. You might be able to get a little bit of scrap from a builder that's too small to use for a body or a neck or anything.
  7. I've decided to just go with a green pealoid pickguard....

    I would contact THG Knobs. Since he makes wooden knobs, I wonder if he would also make wooden pick-guards and pick-up covers.
    Worth a shot IMO.

    I did this with a bit of 7-ply birch, a dremel, stain, and some clearcoat. It looks very pretty, took 5-7 hours, and has a subtley original shape
