Hi all... I have what may be a rather stupid question. I have a Rg 270. It does not have a pickguard of course. Is it possible to drop a pickguard on it (after taking off the knobs etc), or will i have issues with the pickups and such? I just prefer the look of the Rg with the pickguard.

Thanks,
Cory.

Sure you can. Just make sure to use the pickguard as a stensel when drilling the screw holes so there are no line up problems, etc;)

I have a similar beater i would like to have a pickguard custom made for as Im wanting a different look and feel. Ive posted about this several times, but maybe someone has something laying around like this as well. I want a pearloid pickguard, with only one pickup cutout for the humbucker, and 1 hole for the volume control and thats it, preferably in pearloid. What would something like this cost, and could someone show me some reputeable vendors for something like this?

Most aftermarket pickguards are available in top route or rear route versions. The difference is that rear routed guards have enlarged holes to allow for clearance around the pot mounting nuts and so that the switch tip doesn't rest directly on the pickguard in positions 1 & 5. The pickups may have to be mounted directly to the body if yours are on mounting rings now.
