get several calls every day from musicians who want to have a custom
pickguard made. In almost all cases it will be for some obscure
guitar or for some special pickup configuration. Because we
are a custom shop I am obligated to have the mandatory 8 minute
conversation that usually ends up with "Let me think about it" or
"I'll get back to you."
My website is intended to answer all questions, especially repetitive ones that rarely turn into sales. For example, I still get at least 2 calls a day looking for directions.
Why So Much?
Usually a custom pickguard costs approximately $125.00 to $150.00. Everyone whines big time about the price, so instead of me trying to explain it over & over, please read below.
To make a custom pickguard by hand it requires: a $785.00 precision cut jigsaw, a $460.00 oscillating spindle sander, an electric drill with a countersink attachment, a full Dremel set and a steady hand and a whole lot of patience, and I have recently added a $1,250.00 Duplicarver for the more popular models.
Usually the material to make the pickguard is only about $25.00 but it is very common that we have to use $50.00 worth of materiel because of some slight error made in construction. Sometimes materials can hit as high as $200.00 (stainless steel for example.)
Typically a pickguard will take as much as 3 to 4 hours to make. This job is very much a pain because no one wants to do it. My technicians regard it as punishment.
If you go to one of the corporate automated companies like Warmoth Allparts or WD they will most likely not have a Template for what you need. They will charge you a template fee which is somewhere around $95.00 then the pickguard will be built and you will be charged accordingly.
Unless you have a Standard Guitar like a Strat, Tele or a Gibson you may find
yourself waiting longer & paying more by going to one of the bigger companies.
(Gibson models can differ & Gibson parts don't fit Epiphones)
This pick guard may look stock but in fact there is PRS bridge instead of a stock Fender Bridge. It had to be custom made.
Also please notice this Pearloid material is the high quality very expensive pure white variety.
Fender and G&L sell this type of pick guard for $69.00 and they both use a lower cost yellowish looking Pearloid.
Of course neither of theirs will work for a PRS tremolo install.

Dress up your guitar with solid aluminum face plates.
These guitars reflect light aimed at you on stage and bring out an extreme array of holographic colors and patterns. Great for any performer who wants to stand out from the crowd. And don't worry about your sound, these amazing face plates won't affect it at all.
We did 10 of these for Toby Keith for one
of his restaurant nightclubs in Las Vegas.
These high quality face plates
are made with a light-weight aircraft grade alloy. The
choice of this alloy was made easy by recognizing it's
excellent noise shielding qualities, light weight, and
abilities to provide holographic imaging properties.
All face plates are available in any color and any design. All are interchangeable as well.
Our custom shop can also offer this material for any guitar you may want to use it on.
