Custom 7 string Pickguard

Hey Everyone,
Just want you all to know, I had Tommy at Pickguard Paradise cut me a custom UV guard. It was for an RG7621. Basically, the bridge cutout was made smaller, the switch hole wasn't put in, and the tone hole knob was made larger for a 3 way toggle switch. I had him do it in 3 ply W/B/W. He is in the process of making me a custom truss rod cover.

Onto the review...
First let me tell you, the guard came out looking very professional. Measurements I gave him were cut exact! He make the pickup holes for EMG-707's. I sent him the pickup for him to use as a template. He cuts the shape with a laser, and the shape was an EXACT copy of the original UV guard.

FORGET JEANNIE PICKGUARDS!!! That guy was a nightmare. Machine marks were left on the edges, the pickup holes were way to big.

Tommy however is a pro and has me as a very happy customer! Don't hesitate. Pricing was absolutely reasonable, and shipping was a flash! Just thought you'd all like to know about him before you were screwed by Jeannie like i first was Enjoy people!

Re: Custom 7 string Pickguard

Im having him make me a new pickguard for my PWH as I type this.
The original (you can see the photo in the UV7PWH Registry thread) has 2 small holes in it from a midi pickup or whatever was in there. It's right in between the bridge pickup and trem. I have confidence in him, he sounded very professional when I talked to him so I cant wait. It should be here in a few days.
No need to post it though because it's just going to be the same exact pickguard minus those 2 small screw holes that were driving me insane.
