    I really want to make my own....I don't think I would want to pay for someone to make one for me

    I did one out of 3mm luan, turned out great. just taped the pick guard to the luan, cut it with a jigsaw, sanded a beveled edge on it, Routed a pickup slot, stained and wiped on some poly. The whole process took about an hour, and was installed the next day...Instant gratification!

    I got it on a natural Alder jazz style body I made, no controls yet...
    I'll post pictures later...
