Earlier today I came across these guys: https://www.facebook...riouspickguard/

Sorry for the photo overload but they're just so nice! Is there anyone in the UK who can do a similar thing?? I want a couple for my Yammy BB!

Any idea where I could get such a thing done over here?

Edit: actually, since he seems to be the best guy in the world for this kind of work, I may as well just put in a custom order with him. He's sent guards all over the world so it shouldn't be a problem. Now I just need to find out how much they cost...

Becky is here in the UK, so I can't see it being a problem!

I was just thinking how to make my basses even heavier, once the shoulder goes numb you can add extra weight lol

I know...and my BB isn't exactly a lightweight as it is but oh well. I'm a large guy myself so I'll deal with it.

Don't do it! According to a thread on Talkbass, pickguards ruin the sound,. Imagine what these will do! :D

The ones on the black guitars do appeal to me, though.

Haha! I haven't seen that one but I may well search for the thread just for the comedy value. I love how the Lakland guard is completely different from the stock guard shape and encompasses the volume knob! Top quality craftsmanship.

Do you have to send your bass over if it doesn't currently have a pickguard which could be used as a template I wonder ?
Really want one for my new Marusczcyk Elwood - it would be awesome if it could incorporate the control plate (which certainly looks possible)
