    I understand the no pick guard sentiments but also don't like the idea of my guitars face getting gauged up when I get all aggressive. Split the difference and put on one of these...

    I think pickguards work on LPCs and sometimes on Standards depending on color scheme.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Definitely put a pickguard on that thing. Doesn't look like a LP without one.

    I'm not an LP pickguard guy but it looks like an Epiphone starter pack guitar without one.

    A white Custom absolutely needs one, but pretty much every other LP looks way better without it.

    This is what I was thinking too. Most like due to the black pickups/pickup rings. I knew these came in gold Super 70s stock, so changing them in black without the pickguard does look like those entry Epiphones. Had I gone with the white, I'd have jammed a pickguard immediately as Noodles said. Adding gold pickups will help, but this is the few occasions where the black pickguard totally works.

    I've still got a few weeks as my tech already has 3 of my guitars being set up. I'll leaning towards leaving it as is in the meantime until I decide to change the pickups or not. That and the Melbourne Guitar Show is happening this weekend so God knows what new gear I'll be getting then.

    If you must go with a pickguard, make sure you get the multi-ply one, so it matches the binding. A plain black pickguard would look wrong.
