Title: Replacement Pickguards?
Post by: tulk1 on September 21, 2017, 05:12:49 PM
So, let say just because, I want to replace or get another color or whatever, pick guard for one of my L electrics. Anyone done that? These are a bit unique in shape, especially the Lancaster. I talked to someone at the plant and was told they don't sell parts. So .. how would I get a different pick guard for either my Lancaster or Bakersfield? You know, because ... I want one. Not because I ran over it or something like that!! (I didn't, not this time)

Take a tracing of the guard and contact Pickguards USA they should be able to produce one for you.

Or you can get pickguard blanks from several suppliers.  You could make your own using your original as the template.

Uh ... uh ..... no. I imagine I'd be as adept at that as I am at soldering. Which I'm not.

It was simply a suggestion for an alternative way of accomplishing a pickguard.  That's how I would do it.  Cutting the plastic isn't a big deal with the right tools and techniques.  It' all just chips and sawdust whether wood or plastic or whatever material.  The mess is the same.

If you don't have the confidence and/or tools to do it, then I would go with Rob's suggestion.
