    Now I see 3 of the same pic :lol:

    *Edit*. Ok, so not the same pic. I was just expecting bigger differences between the designs.

    Look closely at the right side down by the control plate. Just minor differences. :)

    Roger, I am not that creative.

    Pickguard A looks somewhat melted, like it's dripping down the guitar except where the control plate blocked it.

    Pickguard C looks awkward, like one of those 60s Japanese guitars where they hadn't quite figured out the right shape for the pickguard yet.

    Of these options, I think Pickguard B is far and away the winner; it follows the lines of the guitar in a good way and just looks more natural than the other two.

    Assuming we’re voting for shape, not colour, I voted B.

    NOTA.
    That’s an ugly design, your honor.
    I’m rethinking my pickguard on my avatar guitar, too BTW.

    Why can't I vote?

    I'd pick C, but mainly I would do something that hides that buttcrack at the bottom, which none of them do.

    Voting is closed. And in regards to the buttcrack, it will be filled so there is nothing to hide.
