Pickguard for JTV-59
by rokgod1 on 2012-02-14 07:58:11

I had Chandler Guitars send me an LP pickguard blank, and I used a dremmel tool to cut the pickup notches (took me about 15 minutes to measure, cut, lightly sand, and install).

HAHAHAHA! Thanks for the compliment (I think?). Unfortunately, the photo really doesn't do it justice. It has an irredescence to it like a pearloid pickguard, and there are shades of beige & gold that match the binding running through it along with the black. This photo example of the material from the pickguardheaven website might be a better example, but then, everyone's taste is different

Well, one thing's for certain, you won't be copying my look! :-)

that picture does look better... i think the white is too distracting for my taste, since it's doesn't fall as neatly into the guitar color as the others do.
