Has anyone done this? I've taken off a lot of PG's in my day - always just used naptha and dental floss and never had a problem but my incoming 000-40r is satin finished and I don't know much about that stuff. I'm thinking Greven OM style or none at all as I'll only be fingerpicking and I don't really care for the big one that comes stock.......or should I just leave it alone?

Larrivee clear pickguards are actually quite small.  I much prefer the Goodall clearguards ..... bigger is better

I use a hair dryer set on low about 4-5 inch's away.Starting at the corner closest to the sound hole and lift very very slowly with much care.Once the guard is off then I use naptha to remove any left over glue.

I bet he has.  I've done it with both satin and gloss. 

I believe, both finishes are essentially the same.   Less polishing is the main difference (though there are minor differences in the chemical makeup).

Some folks use dental floss (which I have tried, successfully), but patience works best for me.

I did my OO-40R and did a little damage. First time it ever happened.
   Be careful, the new finish is different and very thin.

Too many guitars... But I keep thinking one more may just do it.
