Something like these:
This is NOT what I'm looking for:
Too busy, I want something more subtle.
Pretty close, but expensive, even more so with customs, the flowers are bigger than I would like, and it's aluminum and I would prefer 3 ply black/white/black.
Kinda doesn’t really tick all the boxes then!?
If you are up to an artistic adventure—buy a plain pickguard, scratch your design into it with an awl or something like that. Could maybe use a really sharp Lino block cutter too. Then wipe acrylic paint across the surface-it will settle into the grooves and you can wipe it off the surface of the pickguard. A little clear coat afterwards wouldn’t hurt. I haven’t done this to a pickguard but to other plastic items and it has worked well.
There are also things like this which I am sure would make the job easier
WAIT!!!!.....your third example is too busy.....but the first two AREN'T?????????
To each his own, obviously, but one of the main things I love about Telecasters is their simplicity.
O.k., maybe I would want it even a bit simpler than the Japanese examples, just a bit around the outline.
Indra Guitars could do it, but I think he only works with aluminum (aluminium) guards. He's in Europe too, I believe.
