1 Parralax View 1 year ago I do not care for the MOP pickguard. I would like to change it's color. I was wondering if using steel wool to rough up the surface, and applying an anodized spray paint would be more later nightmare, than leaving it as is. Has anyone painted one of these???I realize I would have to paint both sides, and then there is the issue of it being three ply, I actually like the black center. I was thinking of maybe an aluminum color to match the rest of the chrome bling all over the guitar. Suggestions?? Do it, or.. are you crazy!? Should I just search out a new properly made one??
