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

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.)
