Always off on mine. I rest my fingers right where it sits, it just feels wrong to me.

'ON' as was originally intended with no top wrap on the tail piece also.

Off. Because the majority voted On. That's so conformist. Be a hipster: Off is the right choice.






If it comes without a hole, off. If it comes with a hole, on.

I always put the screw back in even if the pickguard is off. Looks cool and I wouldn't want to lose that TRUE HISTORIC mojo screw in the case haha

A Les Paul without a pickguard is like a tuxedo without a cummerbund. A Les Paul is an elegant guitar, a "black tie" kind of instrument.

Even when things get raunchy, loud, and out of control, you can depend on a Les Paul to look good throughout the milieu, kicking ass the whole time.
