Not sure, have you considered professional help
Even the screw hole left by removing the pickguard looks better than that piece of plastic.
I think if they had a way where you could have the pickguard on the lp that doesn't screw into the body, but like attaches to the pickup rings it would appease both the non pickguard and pickguard dudes. And plus if the pickguard dudes want to have it permanently, they could always buy the traditional style construction and drill the holes to accomodate for it.
Didn't they already do that a few years back, like with magnets or something? Or did I dream that... Paging @Vinsanitizer
Maybe you are thinking of the satin models that came with a pickguard, but it was not attached at the factory. My 2008 came like that. Pickguard was in the case, unattached. For the record, it has never been put on and never will be.
I recently tallied up JUST the Gibsons that i own .... I was thinkin I might need professional help for THAT
As for those guitars above ....
Though Ive managed to get to a place,as a "professional musician" ,I think my guitar tastes tend to run more toward the proletarian end of the spectrum......It's as if Im still a 15 yr old tryin to scrounge up $80 for some bolt on Japanese copy in 1978
Almost put the pickguard on this today.
Fortunately i came to my senses.
BTW a floyd on a LP is just wrong.
To me it seems like a turn the clock back to more sensibile guitars built with the specs that we want , sans the robo tuners and crap like that .
My 2010 LP standard came with a pickguard unattached, and still is is.
Pickguards are on a case by case basis , but generally , Customs = pickguard , Standards / Deluxes = optional
Won't pay $ for robo-tuners. If someone gave me one that would be different, plus i tune to Eb. Plus those things are re-chargable. Can you imagine wanting to play your guitar but you got to wait for it to "charge" ... lol.
IMO if you can't tune an instrument you shouldn't be playing it.
Nice looking SG, I wouldn't mind having that...but it would only last 10 minutes before I put black reflector knobs on there.
I'd prefer that burgundy with cream plastics and P90 pickups. Deluxe, I guess? As long as the back is brown, I may check the ice tea burst out.
Meh... Prices are too high.
I agree...A Floyd on a LP is wrong but I guess some feel the need
They did that! It was in 2014 - 2015 where the pickguard was a clip on to the pup ring and it looked cheap and really stupid. It did not last long. Most of their models are sold with the pickguard not installed so the buyer can do as he/she pleases. At least thats how ALL of my Les Paul Standards where shipped to me.
That's because they're ugly. "install at your own risk"
It really bugs me that on all non CS reissues, the headstocks are wrong...
Looks even stranger on the SG reissues.
I know it's something really trivial and most people either won't care or won't notice (I might even get some stick for saying this) but I'll never understand why they put the new style headstock on the year specific vintage reissues or the era specific (50's / 60's) vintage reissues.
Ahhh yes I don’t have a custom, but my studio is in arctic white, and the only one with a pickgaurd! Cheers
