    These are incredible! Fancy sending me a template? I'd like to use your design on a fiesta red warmoth baritone Tele I'm about to start.

    Tim73, Those leather pick guards are beautiful.
    I've saved that website to my bookmarks, hopefully will get round to buying one of those... It's a shame it'll be going on a Squier though.:lol:

    If I got a specially made custom PG, I'd have to keep buying Teles forever that will match it.

    That's my favorite too. I talked to a friend of mine about modeling for one of my own - she's thinking about it : )

    Glad you like them.

    There's really no template, other than the pickguard before the one being made.
    Very primitive, each a little different to fit the guitar it goes on.
