    Where can I buy a 4-ply Standard batwing Pickguard? And will it break my budget for the month?

    WD Music doesn't stock them, and it would cost me an arm and some other body part to have them make me one. Same with Pickguardian--too darn expensive.

    Chandler's Pickguard Heaven did my Samick's Batwing in 5-ply Black/Creme with a wide bevel for $35. But that was from a real 1968 template, they list the modern SG Standard as $28 for a 5-ply.
