Re: Picture of rg550 with pickguard taken off?

i would like to mod my guitar into a natural oil finished one, but without a pickguard, or with clear one...but i have no idea what would that look like...i mean-whats actual function of pickguard-only as a GUARD from PICKING, or it hides cables and stuff, like in the strats?...
if anyone has done something similar or have a picture or a link, i would be very gratefull...thanx

Re: Picture of rg550 with pickguard taken off?

A pearloid plate, a-la the 7VWH is a nice subtle mature look - I do that with all of my strats - the plain white plates just look really boring to me. There are a couple of threads about natural finishes on RGs here - the Basswood is REALLY soft, and to a degree the urethane finish is what gives it resistance to bumps and dents, so an oiled finish may be a bit problematic. If you are really ambitious, have a look at Projectguitar.com's tutorial about adding a figured maple top to a guitar - that'd be pretty classy!

Cheers

Yes..maple top would be real stuff..but, this is my only guitar...i am not so brave to experiment on my own with that tutorial, and i guess it is rather expensive to pay it..in my country i guess at least 200 euros...but i am just guessing arround...i cannot find exact thread about natural rgs...any link...?thanx
