    Hi all,

    First time posting.

    Was hoping I could get some insights. Just purchased a 2009 r9 and noticed the pickguard screw was screwed in at a slant which I've never seen before.

    What's strange is it looked like the pickguard was made this way to go in at all. Hoping someone could provide me some insights. Thanks!

    Okay cool thanks. I've never seen them where they're drilled at an angle, only straight down.

    I thought that until I saw the groove in the pickguard that leading the screw at an angle.

    That is weird, my R8 doesn't have the screw in at an angle. I wouldn't worry too much about something minor like that though.
