25TH Anniversary RG Pickguard Replacement

Does anyone know what will fit? RG550, modern Prestige?

I have the yellow version and I want to make it even more eighties outrageous.

Not usre an RG550 will fit. I printed the template from Perle and the holes seem a bit off. (after checking the scale of course)

Re: 25TH Anniversary RG Pickguard Replacement

RG1550 should work. Your premium has a 58mm wide neck (at the heel) the earlier Wizards on the 550's only had a 56mm pocket. I don't know if the trem cutout will work with the EZII. The 1550's has an Edge-pro.

Your best bet is to get a custom made. send in a template of your guard and they'll make one exactly the same in whatever material you like.

Re: 25TH Anniversary RG Pickguard Replacement

Using the templates available from Perle it appears to the same as an RG350. The Screw pattern is wider than the RG550. Everything seems to match perfectly with the 350, which make sense bieng indo based.

Are Perle pickguards any good? How about compared to Paradise?

I usually go with a Jennie pickguard. I bought two from them for my old 350's and they were great.

This is the only way to ensure a proper fit.
Go with the usual vendors:
Pickguard Paradise
Greasy Groove
Pickguard Heaven
Aiguitars on eBay

Re: 25TH Anniversary RG Pickguard Replacement

Perle had one listed on the bay for a 350MDX with a template. I remove my pickguard and the template matches perfectly so I went with them. I really wanted to buy from Paradise, but at only $35 shipped Perle was hard to beat. I will let you know how it fits and looks when it comes in.

It will be interesting to hear the feedback on the color. The guitar is an RG1XXV in florescent yellow and the replacement pickguard is mirror purple. This is going to be interesting, and Yes, I am a Lakers fan (although that had nothing to do with the color choice).
