Where to buy a clear Universe pickguard?

Hey guys, I bought a swirled UV body from Alan at OOTS. I'm looking for a pickguard just like this one in the photo where the plastic of the pickguard goes around the screws from the toggle switch. Does anyone know where to get these? I've seen some UV pickguards on Jeannie pickguards, but they seem a bit different than these.

Here's the pic of the type of guard I'm looking for:



Thanks in advance guys.

-Phil

Make sure you get a beveled edge pickguard when you order it.

Thanks but I can't justify spending $160 on a pickguard.

Dont buy from Jeannie pickguards, that guy is a total a$$hole. I bought from pickguard paradise and Tom is a nice chap and will work with you if there's any problems with it fitting your body. Toms pickguards is also a much thicker plastic compared to normal Jems/UV, which I quite liked but it that's not your thing then you may want to discuss with him.

Agreed, I bought mine from Jeannie and the guy wasn't too pleasant to deal with.

Understandable, but there is something to be said about original equipment.
(other than the fact that it's very expensive...LOL)

That one is not mine. I just used the pic to show what kind of pickguard I need. I'll be posting a NGD thread when mine gets put together.
