I have lots of great old images, and you do too. I can make you a custom pickguard for your Telecaster or Esquire. I can do you up a solid-color pickguard to offset your guitar's finish as well; basically any color. I had to do that to get a brown one to match the back and sides of my yella guitar (image below) before I thought I'd try Ghost Riders instead for a while. I could probably manage to make you a custom pickguard for other types of guitars as well. Prices for a custom guard (generally a laminated image under a clear acrylic pickguard) start at about $35. The pickguard examples with Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa are made from photographs I shot awhile back...









Or, maybe one with YOUR face on it !! Your wife'll love it !! Or one with HER face !!

Just think, if my face was on the pick guard, nobody would want to steal it!

Nick worked with me to make a custom "shell pink" pickguard. He communicated with me all along the way , sending various pictures to make sure he got it just right. The pick guard arrived today and it's exactly what I wanted. Nick really knocked it out of the park with quality and communication. I will certainly be doing business with nick again in the future!

Yes, but most likely will look better with a Tele or Esquire in terms of the label.

Nick, you have done it sgain !
Will have you do some in certain colors as soon as I complete my 5th wheel move to another area. Simple move 4 most, but in my life now a difficult one. I need to figure color schemes, and if I need to re-paint a couple of black ones. Check 4 buffalo on the way. CAA
