Custom pickguards, truss rod covers, pickup covers etc ?

Pls forgive my ignorance...but there are a lot you guys mentioning abt getting custom made pickguards...esp those wanting to change the white pickguard out of the Blue sparkle JEM..etc..where can I get a custom pickguard made? Any links to the websites etc? And a long time back, I remembered there used to be a place where you could even get custom pickup covers etc...any information on that?
The only link I could find was the banner at the top..
thanks in advance

I've been trying to get black/red and red/black Dimarzio Tone Zone and Air Nortons for my seven-string, but those particular ones aren't available in custom colours I'd have to settle for Blazes or Evos, but they don't have enough mids. (Yes, I've finally decided).

I'm planning on making a custom Jem-style guitar out of a scrappy RG if I find one - I want something sort of like a BSB but in grey, or maybe a red sparkly Jem with a smoky dark mirror pickguard, if that's at all possible somehow.

Will do! Since funds are limited I plan to buy a used RG (any old RG as long as it has an Edge, whether it's front or rear routed, and whatever pickup configuration, doesn't matter cos I'll be changing it anyway). So if anyone knows anybody in Australia who's trying to get rid of one (or two so I can do both ideas)...

Actually I know of someone who's selling a black RG550 for $600 ($300 US) but I want a rosewood fretboard. Though maybe it's an excuse to learn how to make my own, LGM-style

Why don't you just get it and change the fretboard on it?

I do belive that EKG does some custom pick guard work. I had mine done at Jeannies, great service but the fit wasn't perfect. Either way I gotta get a new one done. www.ekgco.com

You can always do what I did with my VWH,,, I went to a sign shop and bought some sparkly vinyl sticker material and made my own cover. This also allows you to preserve the original plastic,,,,if you ever decide to sell it,,,,you can put it all back to stock. Jeanies pickguards are nice as well.... I just could never find what I was looking for.... You could "Kollage" them as well..... Check out my link.

Hmm..so you are saying that you're getting a new one cos the fit wasnt alright? Think I better not get frm them then, since its going to cost quite a bit after it gets shipped to me and etc. Maybe I should just get the originals frm Ibanez although they cost really a lot...

By the way, anyone knows if the diff between the pickguard onthe JEM555 white and the original JEM7VWH? Are they interchangeable in terms of fit size?
