DNA Pickguard Question

Can the DNA pickguards be ordered as replacements? *How much are they?

I have an idea for my pickguard, but dont' want to do it unless I know a stock one can be aquired.

I was told they would be made available, but as of yet I don't believe they are.

Aren't they just plain old clear Jem pickguards? *I think any clear pickguard will "glow" :sarcasm: unde a black light.

Evidently you didn't check yours out that 'day' you had it :loco: It doesn't glow, it's like turning a spotlight on. Very reactive material.

If/when they are available, my MC is gonna’ have a glowing pick guard. :biggrin: I hardly ever play in the dark under a black light, actually I hardly ever play, but what the hell.

Either that or:

1. *I didn't use the black light correctly and only got a tiny purple-ish "glow" in the pickguard, hardly a "spot light" effect.

2. *It isn't as magnificent as you're making it out to be. Come on already - you've sold your lot of them, you don't have to hype them up anymore, or do you have more to sell?!?! *:laugh:

One more thing to consider, they come stock on the Jem DNA, but will they offer one that will fit the Universe? *6 vs. 7? *

The DNA pickguard is available as a separate/ replacement item. Part number 4PGJEM2K, list price $90.00. I was told that it is available through any dealer, but not direct.

Cheers,
Butch

You should trade with Bob! *I think a mirrored guard on a swirl would look sweet

We'll let everybody decide for themselves.



Butch, thanks for the info!

Cool pic Rich...the hype machine keeps rolling...what was the particular environment established for the example you've displayed? :sarcasm:

But I am still curious to know if it will fit on a Universe.

Let's see, camera, black light, no other lights on :sarcasm:

Of course a Jem guard won't fit a UV.
