    Fancied something different

    Had a sheet of black anodised 1.5mm aluminium sitting about, Telecaster pick guard fitted, so cut one out, found a cool design, Day of the Dead skull, and freehanded the vines and flower bit, then proceeded to engrave it all, took a while but i think its turned out ok...

    Dont really have a Tele to put it on, well i do, but they all have pick guards so will probably try and flog it, test the market as they say.

    You need to build or buy a Telecaster now to put that on! Don’t let it go to waste if it won’t work with any of your current Telecasters.

    Nice work Ghost.
    My fixed price for engraved Tele pickguards used to be $95 if that helps you any.

    Well if I custom made one for somebody it was $95, if I sold them on eBay they generally went for at least $60 or so.
