    My '67 Standard pickguard started to show the common 'tip uplift' due to the black/white layers shrinking at different rates. Has anyone successfully been able to correct this problem, and if so, how? My initial thoughts were to sandwich the pickguard between 2 aluminum plates with weight on top and a source of gentle heat like a heat pad and warm it slowly over a long period of time.

    Anyone?

    I’ve glued down warped single ply Fender pickguards with a dab of SuperGlue or Gorilla glue, but these were not vintage lacquer finishes.
    I had an old J-45 that curled up the pg. Double sided tape was the Rx, after removing the rubber cement Gibson originally used.
