RG1570 pickguard mod

Do you think there is any value in adding a clear pickguard to an RG1570 that has direct mount pickups?

Would it be possible to mount the pickups to the pickguard and would this fit the body without needing to mod the cavities or anything?

I've seen some JEMS that sort of look like this. I've also seen Premiums that have a pickguard but are direct mount which to me defeats the whole point.

Would I just need to find a pickguard that has the right mounting holes for the 3 pickups?
