i have looked on the web and can find many pickguards, but not one of those small, off-to-the-side, grevin-styles. there is a thread on here somewhere showing a pic of someones OM larrivee with one of these. the look is awesome imo. cant seem to find that thread. anyway, where can i get one of these pickguards?

and....

im sure there are a thousand threads on peeling off the old clear larrivee pickgaurds as well, but what is the best course of action for doing so?

thanks

FQMS has them online here: http://www.fqms.com/OM_Shape_C1901.cfm?UserID=1650037&jsessionid=2c303378e545$D0$3F$F

I actually have a 30s style OM guard that I ordered from them that I originally intended to use on a Martin 00-15.  When I removed the original pickguard, however, there were "tan lines", so I ended up needing the larger 000 size Greven for it.   :<> 

I don't have a guitar that can use the 30s OM guard I purchased; it is brand new in its package - PM me if you're interested.

Hi TSOAS,

Sorry for the late response.. but I got my particular pg from Maury's Music.  Ordering one of these preshaped pickguards is a risk.  Maury, himself, assured me that his Greven OM pickguards he had in stock were shaped after Martin OM pickguards.  Well when I received the Greven guard and compared it with an actual Martin OM pickguard, it was far from accurate.  The contour of the rosette didn't match, the "tear-drop" shape was a little off, and it was overall slightly bigger than the Martin pickguard. 

Anyhow, you can read more about it here:  http://www.larriveeforum.com/smf/index.php?topic=11233.msg102297#msg102297
