    Two ply or more, otherwise it'll rip.

    Go look up the semi-obscure MIJ Fender Heartfield Talons. Always liked their pickgaurds. I wouldn't do something quite that pointy, especially on a strat shape, but maybe something halfway between one of those and the standard type pickguard you are doing here would be cool.

    I'm not a pick guard guy, but that might be the coolest one I've ever seen.

    And FWIW, the one with the white stripe gets my vote.

    Strat knob and triple-ply/white centre for me.

    The Talon is Mishoe-tastic.

    I would also take some nail polish remover and remove the "Seymour Duncan" from the pickups.

    I went back to the 1-ply black but kept the strat volume knob;



    I much prefer this.

    I mean... No? Why would I do that I make pickguards for people who want replacement pickguards for their Charvels, not for someone who wants their guitar to look like they got it designed by someone who thought this is what the future looked like in 1975.

    I thought of doing that to the neck single. I don't mind it on humbuckers but for some reason on single coils it looks a bit goofy. I might swap that single out for something else anyway tbh. I love Duncan 'buckers but their singles are not my cup of tea. This one's ok, but it's just ok.

    Yeah, it doesn't look bad, but it definitely looked better before.
