lol its alright, that would depend on you being able to play a left handed guitar....it needed a change from the brown tort guard though, and i think this one looks a million times better.

Hi, Redman,

I was askin for someone to build me a custom pickguard a few weeks ago. Woulda cost me about $80 total. Here's what worked....hope it helps.

Made my own template.

Did a bunch of internet searches over several weeks and finally found a shop that was unloading pickguard sheets of just what I wanted. $14.99 for an 8x10 sheet of tort is a long shot, but there are unusual deals out there if you are patient & persistent.

Then I networked among firends & work colleagues and found a woodwork hobbyist who looked at the template and the sheet and said, "Easy".

He cut it, sanded the edges, drilled the screw-holes, and I paid him two six-packs of designer ales.

Cheers,

except for its like 70 for the material from one place, plus the 10% upcharge, plus shipping and all that, ended up coming to around 80-90 bucks

Oooops. Just noticed you got your pickguard, Redman. Congratulations!

So, maybe my strategy will help someone else...

Cheers,
