    Very excited to announce that my super legit celluloid leopard semi transparent pickguard arrived. I fitted and drilled this morning.

    Here she is:

    Looks eerily close ;)

    With my custom wound Rob DiStefano Cavalier Leopard Set (2 custom wound strat pickups wound to sound like the old Hohner Madcat set), it sounds the part too!

    The MadCat ones are opaque but that doesnt work on the HB's because of the routing.

    The one I got is opaque. I think it looks cool with the routing, personally. There are some really easy solutions as well, like aluminum foil covering the backside of the pickguard for shielding/aesthetic.

    Looks good & I'll bet those pickups from Rob are nice as well. He knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

    New here on the forums, been lurking a while.
    Can anyone tell me about VAT on these? Thinking of pulling the trigger on one soon, but wonder what, if any, import duty I'll have to pay.

    Thanks,
    Barry

    It was just 220 bucks total for me. No import stuff.
