Dino, on the Perle site, click the ebay button he's got on the left column...he's got all kinds of pickguards for sale on ebay. You can likely find what you need there, and in the rare instance you cant he'll make it.

Re: RG pickgaurds

Hey guys I have a question on those.
I bought one from ebay and it doesn't fit my RG550 the space in between the slot where it goes around the neck is too wide and there is a gap on either side of the neck which looks awful also the screw holes don't line up exactly. My question is was there different widths on the neck in different years? Mine is 1987 so could it be the earlier necks were narrower in that spot? The shape is ever so slightly off but that part would be ok I just want it to fit (I got a 2 humbucker only version since to me the middle pickup is useless and in the way)

Yes, in 2005 Ibanez switched from a 56mm pocket to 58mm. If you bought it from Nate (PCguitars, I think) just send him an email.... he'll get you sorted out. He's also a member here.

Thanks RGT
That's the problem I measured the new one that doesn't fit and it is indeed 58mm just enough to make it ugly on the guitar (if the guitar was black or some dark color probably wouldn't even notice but since she's white it looks awful)
