Question GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

I know its a low level 7 string. But I was wondering if anyone here knew of a place to get a replacement pickguard or if a UV pickguard would fit them? I was thinking of upgrading it when I have the time, make it a cheap UV Green dot knock off

the one that is on it is warpped and I was thinking of adding a Single coil in the middle and of course upgrade the humbuckers. and Possibly swaping the neck for a warmoth baritone 7 if I can't find anyone to build one that looks like an Ibanez neck still when I have the cash.

Anyways any help would be awesome.

I think most members were giving you a little time to figure out how to Google" replacement pickguards" or" custom pickguards." ;p
Two of the best places are:

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

That's what the" contact us" link is for--most places will do custom guards.

But I dont know if they would know what to do since its a GRX and I'm not sure if the pickguard is the same shape or size as a UV style.

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

Like I stated--contact them and ask. You would have had an answer by now.

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

I also doubt that a Uni guard will fit. Just like a 550 guard will not fit a Jem, etc. I'm prety sure you're going to have to go the custom road.

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

Yeah, I was trying to compare the screw holes on the grx and a UV I think the UV's had 10 around the edge, and my grx has nine that holds the guard on the body. I found some UV guard for around 50 bucks so a custom would be more usaully right?

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

Screw holes aren't the only issues with swapping guards to different model bodies. Cutout alignment and horns don't usually line up right. You can get a simple, one color custom guard for about$ 50. Hell, Greasy Grove did my custom Space Invaders RG-550 guard for$ 85

Re: GRX720 Replacement Pickguard

I had checked out Greasy Groove, they seemed to only have stuff for 6 strings. I never thought to email them though

We all care too much. How about replacing the whole guitar? Seems like a good idea.
