Mustang pickguard redesign - need a new set of eyes

Recommended Posts

Hey all. So I redesigned the pickguard on my stang and could use some other's opinions. Below are photos of the cardboard template I made. Let me know what you think:

Not half bad, I like it.. the only small little detail i'd change is that you should follow the contour of the body more on the right hip if your guitar

(if you know what I mean) instead of going in a straight line.

I agree, that will be tackled in version mockup 2.0.

A friend of mine suggested I mod it this way:

I am kinda feeling it, but not sure. Feels a little too "cyclone" to me. What do you all think?

I want a bigger guard because I want to experiment with a lot of different onboard configurations (distortion, different wiring setups, etc) and that will give me more mounting room and hide other mods.

I am old fashioned so I do things with scissors, tape, cardboard, tracing paper, and an exacto and not photoshop (even though I used to teach photoshop at a college level). Gonna try the next version this week. I totally agree that it should be a continuous line.

I am a little worried it is starting to look a little toronado-ish. But it is certainly different.

That does look kind of tornado-ish. Especially the lower right. It doesn't look bad though definetly unique.

the first one is just pointless, looks weird and doesnt serve a purpose, the second one actually looks neat but whats the point? whats wrong with the original design?

I think the second one looks ok. The first one looks like a kid with their pants pulled down below their butt to me. :) It is sagging low. :)
