    I thought 2012 Standards came with full face guards. sure you don't have a Standard 61?
    In any event if you have the original and it is damaged, you can trace it and have some shop make one.
    If you are looking to change from the single wing to full bat I recommend reconsideration. Pickup leveling, need to drill hokes and the loss of view of that fabulous finish should be reasons enough to give pause.

    I cannot find a supplier of new genuine Gibson batwing pickguard. Is yours badly scratched? There are scratch removers and polishes for plastic. I have used Virtuoso polish to buff out fine scratches on a few of my pickguards.

    There are some used ones available on Ebay, that might be your best bet for genuine Gibson.
