Pickguard Templates

If you have a string instrument of any kind that needs fixing, a mistake you made in building a new instrument that you need to "disappear," or a question about the ethics of altering an older instrument, ask here. Please note that it will be much easier for us to help you decide on the best repair method if you post some pictures of the problem.

Pickguard Templates

Post by Greg Steil »

Hows about this(unless it already exists), set up a library of Pickguard templates? Just mailed one today. Second one for the same model guitar. I also just made a template from another members guitar, and took some pictures as well of the mounting setup. Whadda ya think?

I grabbed the "Martin" style PDF and printed it out, then checked it against a verified aluminum template, and it's close, but not quite there.

A good, verified library -would- be nice!

That would be a rather large library if you include all the variations over the years.

Don't archivists thrive on the minutia of such things? How else could they fill the library? <g>
