    Hi, I've got an Ibanez RG470ahz-ntf. It's a very good guitar, I love it. I would like to install a pickguard, I wonder if all pickguards for HSH rg are the same. If not, which one should I buy? My guitar has not a pickguard, how can I install one? Should i use glue, screws or what? Thanks in...

Which do...
