unless you prep the guard and use a krylon type spray it'll come off.

guards are $20 on average.

you need to remove or loosen the strings.
support the bridge.
remove outer guard screws.
flip the guard over, it'll still be attached to guitar by 3 wires.

remove the pups off the old guard. watch out for pup springs.
pull off plastic knobs,
remove the pots from the old guard. watch out for washers.
remove switch screws.


you should completely shield the inside of the guitar.
shield the new guard.

put everything on the new guard, careful not to pull out the output jack wires.
put guard on guitar.
balance bridge, adjusting trem screws.
string up adjust action and intonation.
