    I make my own pickguards, just finished a new design idea, looking for feedback, I think it works, or does it need something around the top to balance the design

    what about some wording in funky lettering, Shake, Rattle and Roll !, The Rattler, etc, all suggestions welcome.

    Looks cool. Just my opinion but I wouldn't add any text. Nice job.

    I spent too much time on AZ trails to like it. I'm already backing up and looking for a way around that guitar.

    I understand the reason for placing the snake the way you have it - i.e. the snake is staring at the crowd when you're playing. My suggestion from a design aesthetic is that you would have the snake head up into the horn area (everything flipped to vertical) and then the body coil taking up the space between the pickups.

    Just my $.02.
