    What Ibanez templates are you refering to? The Abasi Sig?

    I might get another RG8 just to get one made in something more exotic :)

    since lewis stole my thunder lol...i ordered some different colored cf wrap. i got green, blue, red, silver and white. i may make a few and see what it looks like first before committing on a real pick guard being made.

    also, i think i would like one be attached with adhesive instead of screw holes in case i change my mind in the future.

    here is what mine currently looks like...

    not guna lie, but white sounds amazing. Is it like pearloid or just white?. White pearl on the white guitar sounds like it would look killer. And classy :yesway:

    I finally received my pickguard from the Polish luthier. It took about a month but it's very nice. The metallic top ply looks great up close. There was a slight separation at the tip of the horn but a little super glue took care of that. Otherwise, no problems.

    presumably the only thing that would change would be the slight cut out at the bottom for the different bridge?. If thats the case then if measurements of the width of the bridge on the 2228 were given to him, then yeah Im sure he could.

    If its a different fitting in different places, then it might be quite tough.

    Does anyone know if any of these guys can do guards for different pickup configurations? Passives, HS specifically.
