    Bought some very thin aluminium today to experiment with...

    I cut it out with some tin snips and filed it to shape... I think this will work, at least for now. Don't know how long it will hold up though. Think I'll paint it to whatever color I decide for the pickguard.

    Nice work man. I'm sure your wife will appreciate all of your hard work. I also like to use clear acrylic for my pickguards and then paint the back. It can be tricky sometimes for sure. I haven't done it with a template yet, but that's how I want to do it moving forward. Are you just using a trim router and a bearing bit?

    Here's the thread for that guitar.

    It's just another build using scraps trying to gain more experience with this relatively new hobby of mine.
