    Keef's used replacement bridges for years. Schaller or Gotoh style.

    Looks good. Might could use a bit more wear...like pick scratches.

    Yes, and perhaps more accumulated spittle, sweat, and puke on the portion under the strings! Looks great, Don (and, yes, there's plenty of ADD going on here. These guys will get off topic here in a NY second!)

    For sure, with such a deep, enthralling topic as a pickguard this thread should go on for pages... :munch

    nope just - Chandlers --

    I may step up to Bakie's once I get the relicking more dialed in
    I want to get the grain closer next time and get that green haze to show..

    Yes - agreed bout the pick scratches -- but I have found theres no need to fake those - just go do a 4 set gig and its usually enough -- fake pick scratches are scary - they really look fake if your not super careful - even then - still.............
