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, etcshredded said: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.
