    Loving my new 2020 Epi SG Standard in Alpine White ..

    But the Black "Bat Wing" pickguard seemed .. um .. stark to me .. brash ..

    So got a blank Mint Guard and created a new Mint Bat Wing for the Alpine White ..

    Includes back cover as well..

    I am blown away by the over all look improvement ..

    Here are some new shots of the Mint as well as the original Bat Wing. betty_1.jpg betty_3.jpg betty_2.jpg SG_blk1.jpg

    ^ Needs more SG's.

    Looks good. Like the mint candies my grandmother used to have from the local candy store.

    Awe... now I gotta go buy some candies.

    it's give me an idea for a guitar though; dark wood finish, mint pick-guard, name it "chocolate mint".

    nice job, and the blank lets you fit the guard perfectly.. how did you bevel the sides, manually or router?.. if you put a mint on a black SG.. it would look like and Andes Creme De Menthe after dinner chocolate.. lol
