    That picture is of John Frusciantes 60s custom tele, anyone know about the pickguard? I think it looks real cool but no one seems to know mych about them.

    I'm gonna bump this in hope that I really haven't found something the TDPRI doesn't know about.

    Were they stock on some certain model of Tele or were they like an aftermarket replacement or something?

    dev, i'm sure i've seen a pic of a guitar with one of those pickguards (or is it a scratchplate?), but i'm afraid i can't recall when or where i saw it...it may well have been an old fender catalog, but then it may have been some random guitar mag...

    good luck, and sorry i can't help...

    You could use the "F" off their vinyl decals set here.
