YES, that pg is classy
It's not a pickguard, it's a necktie.
With. That "bound" tort looks cool as heck.
+1 for the PG, it looks way better with.
Well I took mine off, but I think that one looks good...
On 335s yes.
On Lesters no.
Pickguard, all the way.
Standing vertically the 335 looks better without the pickguard, held horizontally it looks a bit better with, all to do with visual balance. Some guitars look best with out a pickguard some better with. My personal view is that most Gibson types (335, Les pauls etc) look best without because the pickguard looks like an afterthought, not an integral part of the initial design.
Nice guitar! Looks better with the pickguard on in my opinion.
It looks wrong without a pickguard... I have a 1962 ES335, no way would I remove the pickguard.
Keep it on. Looks great.
Keep it on!
Pickguard on. Looks good, protects the finish, what's not to like?
What would Stevie do?
If you actually think it would "guard" the finish from picking or whatever, maybe?
FWIW, I've always removed the PGs from any 335 type or LP I've ever owned. Except my most recent Epi '59 Burst. That old creme PG looks too much like Pagey's to take off for now..?
I'd relic it like Lennon did to his Epi!! No guard.
My approach is not to make a permanent decision. Sometimes the guard is on, sometimes it's off.
On it shall be! I'm home today, I'll do it later this afternoon.
I gotta say off for me. What a beaut!!
