Re: Replace pickguard on RG1451
There are differences between the RG550, RG1550 and above pickguards and those for Indonesian RG350 and similar models. The difference is typically hole configuratons. I bought a 550 pickguard for a 350 once and needed to fill the old holes on the body and drill new ones for the new pickguard. You want to be careful with this since the pickups rest in the pickguard, not on the body, and align with the strings based on how the pickguard is placed. It's not as difficult as it sounds really.
The ones on the RG1451 look like they use the same ones used on the RG1550.
