    REALLY Nice!! And I like the pick guard design. Are you going to bevel it? I think WBW would look nice.

    Thanks! The pickguard will be just b/w/b/w/b like the original. If I were going to use a white theme I think I would go for pearl.

    OK...the pickguard is ready. I made a template from 1/2" plywood, and attached my blank material to the template with double face tape. I used a straight bit to cut the profile, a 45 degree bit to cut the bevel, and then a file to clean up the corners. The first attempt was tuition, and both the template and the part went to the garbage. The second attempt was successful:

    Nice...I'm thinking either the pickguard style you have, or no pickguard at all and just the little piece between the fingerboard and neck pickup.
