Tips fitting clear scratch plate to swirl RG20051
Hi there I have a very rare as I understand RG20051 black grey and white swirl. I had the guitar from new in 2005. I love the guitar but the pickups have never really done it for me and just recently decided to swap them out for some pink ones and it looks so much better and sounds a lot better too.
However I really would like to put a clear scratch plate / pick guard on to it as I feel it looks incomplete and I'm used to the feel of the guard being there.
I know it might be sacrilege but at the end of the day it's my instrument and I want it to be right for me.
So I wanna get it right and not chip the finish drilling holes can anyone advise me of a safe technique to stop the paint ripping up also where is the best place to get a clear plate that actually fits and has the holes cut for the switch and knobs as on a jem. As this guitar is a back routed guitar.
This is it so far
