    No idea.. But if anyone knows where to get a metal chrome pick guard, I'll take one.
    My Edwards John Sykes has a plastic one.

    I do....I can tell you without a doubt that John did not use a plastic tailpiece or bridge.

    Chrome pickup rings are easy to find. The chrome pickguard...I'm searching.

    Make sure that the metal pick up rings are profiled ones designed for a Les Paul's curves; there are non-contoured ones out there too.
