Emerald Green mirrored pickguard for RG550?

I'm looking to get my RG550 painted to match my emerald green 770. I'd like to get an emerald green mirrored pickguard and wanted to know if there were any other options besides pickup paradise and jeannie?

and if anyone knows what material to get? I don't need a tortoise shell or something insanely priced. Something similar to what's on the 550DX and 770DX.

Re: Emerald Green mirrored pickguard for RG550?

I haven't bought from Pickguard Paradise but I like Jeannie. Just make sure you're buying a 550 pickguard and not a 350 pickguard. The holes are different. If you're having your axe painted it might not be a big deal. I put a 550 pickguard on my 350 so I had to fill the old screw holes and drill new ones. No big deal; they're tiny.
I like the mirrored green on green idea, personally. I'd get the heatstock to match, though. Good luck!

My wife owns a '92 RG570 in EG. Sweet color!

You can usually find pickguards for RG's on EvilBay, too, but getting one from Pickguard Paradise is probably your best bet.

I bought from Jeannie before but the quality didn't seem as high and the mirrored guard wasn't as 'mirrored' as you see on other axes.

I'll check the bay and fall back to PP. Thanks for the tips

Oh yeah, headstock will match.
