I've ordered a new mahogany-top Parlor (I'll probably be putting my Walnut Parlor up for a new home soon) and really want to take off the stock pickguard and put a more traditional one on.  Anyone have any ideas of the best way to take the old one off and who might have "tortoise" type pickguards that would fit?

Thanks!

I just wanted to let you know that I followed the instructions listed here on the Forum (albeit with great trepidation) - and had zero problems. I was amazed how simple it was - and there is no evidence that a pickguard was ever there. Take it slow - and be sure to use plenty of clean clothes with the naptha. That glue is really messy if your not careful - but it will come off cleanly.

I am going to put a Greven OM pickguard on my all-mahogany parlor. You can get the Greven pickguards at FQMS or LMII. They are expensive - but you get what you pay for!! See: http://members.cox.net/jga_az/mt_pickguard.jpg

Phil,
I peeled my off of my om-3 with limited success initially.  Using a hair dryer on low to soften the adhesive...just made a sticky mess!  So I stopped half way, waited til it cooled and peeled off the rest just fine.
As for the sticky mess, I used Goof Off or Goo Off and it worked fine.  No harm to the finish and it cleaned up great.  Now I just gotta decide which "traditional" guard to use. Jeff
