As I'm in the home stretch of finishing my LG-O, I've been looking at what to do about the pickguard. The original was long gone when I was given this guitar, so that's not an option (was kinda ugly anyways), but the original screw holes remain. Twisted Evil

I've been kicking around the idea of making my own. The sheet stock for acoustics seems quite thin. Anyone done this before or have any advice? I'm thinking of using just gloss black (~$10 per sheet) and making my own design - maybe Hummingbird-like in shape.

I have found a template for a J-45 that would actually fit AND cover the holes (one would be right on the edge).

thoughts?
