So I stained the top - a subtle sunburst with red mahogany and vintage amber - really like it, but not sure it goes with the walnut pick up rig (which is at work right now, so can't snap a pic with it...).
Feel like the pick up right should be metal....don't know where to get it done in metal though. Suggestions?
a small company called tone guard
(out of CA) sells these brass - and other other metal - pickguards and ive had good success dealing with the single guy who runs the show. there is a small fee for creating a new CAD file for the CNC machine if you dont have a standard pickguard shape, like a USA strat etc. Ive ordered 3 now, and all have worked perfectly, all for different custom projects.
