    That was for you, man, lol! I haven't made that decision yet, so far it isn't bugging me, just feels funny with it on there since I'm not used to it. I don't mind the way it looks at all, kind a makes it look classy even.

    LOL! Mah, the pickguard thing's a running joke... kinda. I like Les Pauls (and to some extent, Strats) because I love the whole rocket/atomic vibe of things from the 50's. When you take the pickguard off a Les Paul, all of that vibe goes poof! The pickguard is a rocket fin, just like on all those cars and stuff from that period. The shape of the Strat pickguard was in the shape of a galaxy... you saw that shape a lot on The Jetsons. Actually, the Strat's whole body shape was going for that look too - the super curvy side of futurama, before it all went pointy and slick.

    Both guitar designs, plus the V and Explorer, were the epitome of the "space age". The V and Explorer are also "rocket fins".

    ok lets settle this pickguard bs right here and now on this guitar.
    everybody send steve a dollar. on the dollar write ON, or OFF.
    at the end of the session he will tally up the dollar votes. which ever
    stack has the most dollars wins.
    i do want to remind vin....... um um i mean you guys you can vote more than once
    by sending a extra dollar or more with your vote again writen on each bill.

    It has Burstbucker 61T (bridge) and 61R (neck) pickups in it. So far they are just ok, not really loving them, but they aren't bad. I have a set of Jim Wagner Darkburst I really want to put in, in fact that was my plan all along, but I'm not sure how all black pickups will look in it. I may have to order a zebra set if I want to do that, huh?

    I like this take on it, but I personally tend to associate electric guitars with women. The curvy LP is very Marilyn Monroe. Take it off, including the pickup covers.

    Black open coil Hbers look great on LPs with cream rings.

    I'd never put black pickups in a sunburst guitar. Maybe, MAYBE a Les Paul Custom with all black plastic, but still. Ew.
