1)Pgaurd to match natural finish? 2)Question about cavities.
hi guys. Im planning on building an RG body for my school tech project (i previously made a post about it but this question deserved a new thread.
I took apart my 450dx last night to sort out the measurements, and once i took the pickgaurd off i had a look at the cavities.Now it would no doubt be easier to have a pickgaurd on my finished body as it would mean i could do all the cavities on one side , and if there was any marks/damage then the pickgaurd would obviously hide this........But i plan on leaving the wood a natural finish, so unless anyone can thinkmof a pickgaurd colour that fits well with a natural finish (i know i never have) then ill have to go with the design similar to my 570, that is with both the electronics and imput cavities on the rear, but atm i cant take the 570 apart to look at all the cavities so basically all i want to know is are the pickup cavities similar dimensions on both models (apart rom the little gap on the cavities on a pickgaurd'ed one).........Or should i go with tye easy options of just routing it all in one area and stick a pickgaurd on?
