So, I already have a Telecaster with an ornate pewter pickguard engraved by my late Father, and having just completed a Telemaster build I wanted a similar deal, although please forgive my engraving skills they are no match for the master craftsman my Father was. I bought some sheet aluminium and a nibbled attachment for my drill. Cut to shape the pickguard and filed smooth the edges. was a bit nervous tackling the engraving but I am quite pleased with the result......be happy to get some opinions on this. Also taking commissions ha ha !
