Looks like half the script has worn off the headstock.

That's one ugly pickguard (my opinion), and one lousy photograph.

Only thing wrong is I can’t hear what it sounds like. 

Sorry, but anyone who gets *that* upset over a pickguard has lost focus.   IMO.

One would need to see better pix and play it before making a judgement.  I would be more interested in WHY that pickguard is on there in the first place.  Pickguards can easily be changed, but what happened to the original one?

I thought we were mocking mocking the pick guard for fun fun. At least, I am I am.  IMO IMO.

Agree ... this is the Larrivee forum, so of course we're going to poke fun and hoot and holler about a Taylor pick guard on one of "our" guitars.!  But we're not taking it THAT seriously...

I didn't notice that it may be a Guild guard until I got a Guild made in China that needed the fingerboard reglued.

It just don't look right.  (period) Is that how period is spelled? I try hard not to offend anyone, especially grammatically correct folks.
    But that PG definetly makes an incorrect statement. IMHO :thumbsup

What's wrong with the picture is that it's out of focus.

There is nothing wrong with the pick guard: Taylor pick guards have a certain attempted "flair".   They remind me of overly decorated "cowboy" shirts from times past.  The Larrivee pick guards I see on the 14-fret D models remind me of teardrops you might see on a cat or monkey from a 1930's black & white illustration or cartoon. (I do have limits: no "Everly" or "Elvis leather" monstrosities for me.)
