I tried to make a pick guard for the Adrian Smith import, but it didn't come out very well.

Is there anyone out there that can copy a pick guard? I have a blank sheet and I traced a template.

Sully, pay attention. Can anyone MAKE a pickguard. I know the websites that offer already made ones, but no one makes one to fit the Adrian Smith model. Not that I can find anyways, lol

I can read. How about trusting me when I give you some advice? All three of those places will take the template you already traced and MAKE a guard from that.

I've used Terrapinguitars, I highly recommend them. I was replacing a Fender Squire pick guard and the Fender style pick guard they offer didn't quite line up with the screw holes. The templates they have are handy for comparison. So I just had them make it with the pickup recesses and I drilled all the other holes myself. Came out really well :)

I e-mailed them all. Hopefully someone will get back to me.

This place made me a custom pickguard for my Ibanez.
