Hi,
I have a '64 Melody Maker that I need a pickguard for. It's just a body, that i'm building up to give to a friend who deserves a good guitar, without busting my pockets. I need a Joan Jett style pickguard that will cover the neck route and the middle of the body. Single ply black. I want to put a P90 in it, it's routed for a HB though so I might have to go with a P90 humbucker size. Mine is the pelham blue, the cherry one is the pickguard style I need. I can't make one, i'd butcher the thing haha. I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks.

You can make a pickguard from an old 33rpm LP!
A few guys here have done that.

Google search MM PG templates, maybe?

Or order some pickguard sheet stock from amazon. It is really not all that difficult. If you can’t locate a template, you can scale up that image and print out some test sheets. Measure some holes on your guitar and use them as reference when scaling.

If you don’t have a scroll saw or a band saw, you can cut it with a coping saw. File/scrape/sand the edges the edges smooth. Use a picec of paper to mark the screw and pickup holes. Would be lots of fun. :thumb:
