It seems like I've found my dream pickguard. The owner of an internet shop told me that he originally had put aside 2 '62 tortoise pickguards for himself, back when Fender made the nice red and black tortoise (as opposed to brown now) but that he was willing to let one of them go for me - Here's the deal, my strat is an SRV Sig and thus only accepts 8 hole pickguards. '62 pickguards have 11 holes. Now, putting a '62 guard on my SRV would mean that I could fit in 6 screws. 3 on the top, and 3 on the bottom. The sides would be left exposed (but could be covered with sawed off screws). Would that be adequate? I was told I could just drill the extra holes in the guitar, but I'd rather not do that to my strat. Are there any cons with leaving the sides on a celluloid guard "unscrewed"?
