Re: My first homemade/custom pickguard

It's been a while since I've done anything with this thread or the guitar. I did start on the new fretboard recently (finally) I don't have many progress pics yet, but I thought I'd show you all the piece of Morado I'm using.

before sanding and oil:

Actually...yes I do!!! I bought one large board (3/4"X6"X60") and one small board (5/16"x4"x36") to make sure I had enough to do future projects if I wanted to. I'd be glad to give some up, or buy some more (I have a supplier that is REALLY inexpensive).
Morado sells for significantly less than rosewood here, but it's harder and is better figured than any rosewood that I've ever seen.

Let me know if you need some.......

Thanks mate, I'm all good though. Can't wait to see how this turns out. I'll live vicariously through you. Got enough on my plate to work on.
