    Gibson-USA-SG-Special-T-2017-Body.jpg Trying to get this look. I am looking for a small wing type pickguard for my 2017 SG Special with P-90 DSC02413.JPG Have this. Not sure if the dimensions are the same. I haven't found a pic of a Special with P-90 soapbar and a pickguard.

    Ideas? Thoughts?

    Yikes yeah im looking for something similar for my naked 2018 sg std hp. I would love something that can slide on and off with no screwholes.

    No luck for me so far but i havent done much except try a couple emails.

    Im kind of getting used to playing with no pickguard ...

    They are cream. I saw recently a 50s Tribute with one with the same pup configuration. Waiting for a reply as to where he/she got there's.

    I know what you mean about the screw holes. I feel your pain. I've been going back and forth with this idea myself.

    Cool, let me know how that goes if you make the move to the pickguard.

    +1 on Pickguardian... many of our members have gone through this same dilemma
    and ended up with plastic-ware from Pickguardian.

    Me, I say, don't do it. I say, just play the darn guitar, and don't fuss about the pick guard.

    I made one out of ebony headstock veneer for my 2012 SG special to replace the one-ply
    black plastic. No one would ever guess that it's wood and not plastic, until they come very
    close, and then it looks so beautiful that it's a real charm.

    I've since made one for my 2014 Epiphone ES-339 out of the same kind of Ebony Headstock veneer from Stewmac. So the concept is valid, and I've played both instruments extensively without scratching up my fine Ebony. But I also finished mine with tung oil, and if I scratch that, I can just
    apply some more tung oil with my finger tip, and disappearo... So mine end up being very
    practical too.
