RG 550 HSS pickguard


I recently acquired a 2000 RG 550. Now I'd like to mod it with a bunch of PUs I've got from previous Projects (TB-4, Wilkinson SC, Air Norton S).

As this is a HSS configuration I'm in need of a new pickguard. I've already contacted the guys of WD and custom pickguards, but both of them require a paper tracing. Unfortunately I'll receive the guitar in Jan because I'll use it abroad, hence I need the guard beforehand.

Do you know where I could buy a pickguard in HSS configuration without sending them scratches?

I've already checked eBay but there's nothing..

Many thanks!

Contact this seller...... he makes them to order.
I have two of his pickguards. They are very good.

Re: RG 550 HSS pickguard

On this note, I bought some DiMarzio pots for a perle pickguard and they don't fit the holes, and the knobs don't fit the shafts. What are good new pots that will fit these 550's/pickguards? Thanks!
