Custom Pickguard Making


leopard print guitar scratchplate

Your search is over, I can make any design of scratchplate for your guitar (preferably) from the original, a hand drawn template or a complete new design. I also offer to do this via post for ease!

They're carefully cut by hand to make sure they fit your instrument. They're copies of the original or your supplied template.

Rough Prices

Now then, It's very hard to give some baseline prices out so i think the best way is to set out some examples.

The scratchplates are priced according to how hard they are to make (how complex and, in particular, how many flush edges there are!), how large they are as well as the price of the pickguard stock materials cost
