    Funny how in many pickguard threads (not this one) people say "I hate tort guards".

    Thanks for the compliments guys! @LGOberean I’ll definitely look into B&G this is the first I’ve heard of them. @BorderRadio The line work is actually laser etched and filled with silver paint. Don’t worry I didn’t try to laser celluloid! The PG is acrylic tortoise. It doesn’t quite have the optical depth of the real stuff, but it’s less volatile and easy enough to work with.

    @BorderRadio where did you source the material for your black tele-master? It looks fantastic!

    Someone was looking for band names recently... found one!

    Here is my only tortoise guard. The guitar came with one and I thought I didn’t like it. Installed a black one. It turned out I liked it more than I thought, missed it and had to go back!
