You could try sheet metal... if you have good metalworking tools

(Just a suggestion, I have no idea what problems it might cause)

ive thought of that and as awesome as it would be, must pass. i dont have access to the tools required. though it could be done by hand i really cba with the hassle and hand cutting a pickgaurd out of metal XD

there is this one website i came upon, this guy made glass inlays and glass pickguards, and replicas of ace frehley's iceman, i don't remember what it was called though.

EDIT: i did a bit of googling and found it: http://kamn.brinkster.net/

he makes mirrored pickguards and cavity cover/tremspring cover plates, for relatively cheap

I've seen people use materials like vinyl tiles, leather and leatherette, wood veneers, various kitchen countertop materials, etc. Other than the leather, you can find most from bigbox DIY stores like Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, True Value, etc.

I've seen cool Tele PGs made from old-school vinyl records.
