Pickguard by Andreas! Really finishes the look!

That looks great! What's the pickup? Did you have the original pickguard to outline?

That's nice work, I remember the thread where Andreas made one for his Syncromatic.

The pickup is a vintage Dearmond monkey on a stick pickup. I didn’t make the pick guard...you can contact Andreas ... maybe he can make one for you too. I know it’s not his regular thing but you can check.

Brad, thanks for your kind words! Your guitar looks great with the new pickguard on. It was a fun challange to make your pickguard and I am glad it survived the trip

Hilosean, I did not have an original pickguard (wish I had ) My method was to enlarge an image of an original Synchromatic with pickguard on my 28-inch computer screen. I expanded the picture until it perfectly fit to my own Synchromatic that I held against the screen. Then I made a drawing of the pickguard on the screen. It might not be an exact copy of the original, but I think I came pretty close.

Here is the original Synchromatic which I used as an example, together with Brads.
