You'd have to drill holes, eh!!

Is this just for beautification purposes? Just asking 'cause Matts finishes were - and still are!! - pretty solid!

So. How about a 3ply w/b/w??

Personally, I usually jettison pick guards, but the white on off-white combo always looks pretty good (imo), especially if you go multiply like corsair suggested.

Your call but my vote goes for no pickguard as the finishes are super tough as is and any scratches are easy repair.

Yeah its definately just for looks. I think it looks tougher or more like a "deluxe" model if you will. Id really like to convert it to a 3 p90 setup with the coil split pot turned into a middle pickup on/off push/pull knob. Like the x185 does. But thats a pretty lofty goal for me.
