    Anyone removed their pickguard completely on an SG that came with one like Derek Trucks? I know its more of a LP/ES thing and the SG guard is much nicer shaped, but I still think pretty cool. Curious to see what some of your guitars look like with the guard removed.

    Haha yeah, that's the more common mod I've seen on DT Models, juniors that come without them, etc.

    My SGJ came stock without one...

    My SG3 it would seem pointless (it's where the pickups mount to) and probably look odd.....

    I've owned two SG's and one Les Paul that came from the factory without a pickguard. I added a pickguard to each of them soon after getting it. I don't like the look of an SG without it and don't like the look or feel of a Les Paul without.

    Easy and not showing that much to remove one from a LP. But a SG pickguard is riddled with screws. Would look trashy with all these holes showing, wouldn't it ?

    Shameful, a naked SG without a pickguard. I thought this was a family friendly forum.

    I tend to add them as well. Then again, I'm a obsessive compulsive modder.
