    If you drill a bunch of smugglers holes in it, you need a clear pickguard so we can see them:)

    I did this while posting this, in the time it took,..10 mins?
    Now to line the hole with felt. Hole is angled upwards to help hold the dunlop in place.
    I must admit....it looks ominous.

    Slide installed will never get through a TSA search.

    Well, let me think about that.

    My pocket knife, scissors, and belt made it through. My 5oz shampoo didn't.

    You're probably good.;)

    Hadn't you asked about this previously in a Jr Brown thread?

    Well done nonetheless!!

    & I have to say thank you for posting that guitar. I have that same old Wilkinson bridge purchased cheap from a used site with a SD pickup in it. I'd always wondered how it would look mounted. I like how sleek they are.
