    Vintage Plus (Distressed Series) Pickguard

    Does anyone have one of these sitting around they would like to sell?  Been looking for one for about 6 months now.

      Decided I'll try and modify an American sized pickguard, but I'm very skeptical is to how good of a job I can do without an original outline.  It could look just as bad as the one someone already modified to fit it.  Would anyone be willing to trace me their original pickguard?  This is a total pain in the you know what!  I see they're making an E-II Vintage Plus.  Wonder if that pickguard would fit and if they would sell me just that part?  Could save the trouble of doing all this.

      I am looking for one also, because I am considering changing to a black pickguard,

      I found this,  It a company that make custom replacement pickguards.

       I have not ordered one from them yet so I can't tell you what to expect.

      I found somewhere on their site that you can order a mock for $5 up made out of paper or cardboard to check fit.

      here is the link for a real pickguard.

        I printed out their PDF at Staples and cut it out last year to check the size.  I think it's for the the older vintage plus guitars, as it did not fit.  Staples could have possibly printed out the wrong size.  I told them to print it in the actual size, so it should have been correct.  Supposedly they sell official replacements in Japan, but none of the ESP Japan related stores will reply to my emails.  Will likely have to pay someone to mod it and drill new holes.
