    Default NPGD New pickguard day

    yeah, I know, no big deal compared to a guitar or something..
    I checked the tracking and see where my pickguard was delivered today. So hopefully its in the oversize mailbox at home.. This is a purple mirror guard for my Charvel. Havent played her in 3 weeks, so Im missing her.. Plus, I think this will look sweet! It was custom made, so Im hoping it's cut right..

    yes, Ill put up pics when its together..

    I really wasn't expecting to like that but it actually looks awesome. Nice guitar, man.

    I like it because I've never seen a white and purple guitar before. It's unique.

    I'm with those who would have thought that would sound really weird on paper, but seeing it .... it's great ! It's a nice clean look, too. Well done !
