1 Andreas 2 weeks ago Like most guitars of this model, it lacked its pickguard when I bought her a number of years ago. After several years of searching an original, I gave up and made my own! It was a time-consuming but fun task to do. The big challenge was the bindings, but it worked. One mistake I made was not to subsrtact the thickness of the binding when I did the template. The actual pickguard without binding is exactly the size of the original(with bindings), but now became a few mm bigger overall with the binding added. Anyway, I was quite pleased with the end result.
