Pickguard help

Hey guys, I have been searching for a rear route pick guards for my Herc swirl my dad had finished for me for Christmas. I had no luck finding a clear RR so I purchased a front route from perle.

Is there anyway to mod it to work with my guitar?

Thanks,

Brett

This may partially help you, from the maker (Perle) himself:

Thanks, I did find that the pots wont be much of an issue, im more worried about the pickups and selector.


EDIT: I'm an idiot, Nate has a RR pickguard, I should have looked before I ordered.

Hey dude....good to see you back again. Love the swirl!!

Are you just going to buy a clear, rear route guard then?

Thanks man, good to see you too!

I bought the FR guard without thinking, so if Nate already shipped it I may try and mod it... If it's not worth the sweat and tears I will just buy a RR guard.

It's not worth the effort....... you'll either have to cut the guard or your body.

Get the other one then sell the first. you should get most, if not all, of your money back.

Re: Pickgaurd help

Just buy another one and definitely use the same vendor as the black guard so the screw holes line up.
