    Hard to tell from the close up.
    Are the pickup rings and switch thingy aluminum too?

    The rings are not here yet but yes the rings are aluminum but the switch cover it is similar. It feels heavier . I will keep up with the pictures when it gets here.

    Actually , they came today.
    Not going to put them in now, maybe tomorrow.
    3rd shift now so with a one way 1HR. Commute time is not forgiving.

    100% with you on switching the pickguard to at least a 3 ply. Looks way better, especially if you have a darker coloured Studio. Beautiful guitar.

    My friend, you have a much more serious problem right now than pickguards: DITCH THEM HIDEOUS c.1975 Radio Shack KNOBS! At least go with black tophats and silver tops.

    Fix that first, and then we'll get the pickguard straightened out.

    I really like the chrome on the black motif, but I think just chrome dome top Tele/Charvel knobs would be better.

    That’s funny you mention the top hats Vin because I was looking at those at sweet water today. $19.99 I don’t care for the aluminum look but they feel better. I think at the end of it all the black ones looked better but top hats will likely be next.
