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.

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.

Ok, Thanks.
Do you mean chrome colored plastic or metal? Wouldn’t metal make the guitar heavier?

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

:shock:
Well ofcourse. I believe it had a Nashville bridge in the beginning but has at sometime been replaced for a ABR-1 bridge from what i see. It’s the pickup rings and pickguard i wonder about.

^ Not unusual for a guy who has started 3 different threads asking the very same question, and been told the info is in the sticky each time.
