I like the look of a lot of LP's with the pick guard off. Every time I've tried it on mine it just looks weird and I have to put it back on.

I used to always anchor my fingers on the guard, but now I play with the hand free floating.
I just prefer the look.
In fact - I really want a black Les Paul Custom Axcess Hardtail but refuse to buy it since it has no pickguard.
the Custom just looks like a pervert without that guard IMO

Only two of my LP's came "undrilled".

I drilled/put a historic pickguard (cut down from P90's) on my 2002 LP Standard.

I did not put a guard on my 1996 Classic Premium Plus.

In general I like the pickguard there as a place to anchor my fingers.

There's no reason you can't just add one unless you're really terrified of drilling a few small holes.

I was always against them, but somewhere along the line and probably exposure to videos of my favorite players having them, I started to feel like they were missing something.

My personal rule is: No pickup covers, no pickguard. Pickup covers installed, install pickguard.

I'll tell ya' though, a pickguard is really a waste on a Les Paul Junior. What a beautiful pice of mahogany this is. Shame about the screw holes.
