I know people have differing views on what looks best on a Lester when it comes to leaving the pickguard on or pulling it off. I'm kind of in two minds about it. Generally I prefer the pickguard off on bursts, but when it comes to goldtops I have a tendency to prefer the guitars with the guard left on. But being easily influenced by my heroes, I have lately kind of taken to Duane Allman's pickguardless goldtop. So the question is: Do I leave the pickguard on or do I pull it off?
