technically, if it is on an acoustic, it is a "pick guard", but if it on a strat or similar, it is "pickguard". i dont remember where i read that, but ill try to find the site.
according to Wikipedia (which someone may have posted and I missed), it is spelled pickguard as that spelling brings up a brief history of pickguards on guitars.
Pick guard (as two words), brings up nothing.
I vote pickguard.
I think we should just settle this with the creation of a new name for the thing:
Body Protective Apparatus
Use it in a sentence, It actually sounds really cool.
"To install the pickups on my strat, I must first remove the Body Protective Apparatus."
I was thinking, another benefit of the term is its not only biased towards "picks." The body-protective apparatus is designed to protect the guitar from a number of things such as sweat, jewelry, or debris. Therefore the term "body-protective apparatus" does a better job of encompassing all possible uses for what the body-protective apparatus is intended for.
