Custom Pickguard, Looking for one

Alright, who can tell me where I can get a custom pickguard made??? I have e-mailed lots of places, and they all say..."oh, we can't do that color" or some other crap. I just want a custom FLAT purple pickguard made for my Ibanez Jem. So, if anybody out there knows where I can get one, or if anyone can make it for me, it would be appreciated. I have money$$. Just tired of getting the runaround, it's rediculous that these sites offer "custom" pickguards, but can't even come through on a purple pickguard. Thanks

I think the problem is the "FLAT purple" colour that you want.

I don't think I've ever seen a sheet of lexan or plastic that is a flat purple. They're all glossy.

Re: Custom Pickguard, Looking for one

im with wilch. what you are askin for is a custom custom part. like double custom. ha ha. why dont you get a purple one and then use some really fine steel wool (0000) to knock the shine off? if you dont like it you can always use cleaner wax to buff it back to a shine.

That sounds good, where can I even get a purple pickguard for a Jem though?? Thats the thing. All anybody has is purple mirror, or purple sparkle crap...Anybody know where I can get a purple gloss even??

Buy a clear pickguard and put a purple backing under. Or scuff a black one and spray paint it.
