i chose scratch plate because I just wanted to be "that guy."

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

it's called pickguard, it's there for aesthetics



And for front-routed guitars. Like the Explorer and the Stratocaster.

Pickgaurd because Scratchplate sounds like you have it on your guitar because your a retard who keeps scratching the guitar with his pick.
METAL!

They should be called routing covers because that's all they're there for.
They don't exactly protect your guitar from being scratched.

I've always called it the pickguard. I think the proper name should be electronics cover, but that doesn't sound nearly as cool.
#19
I've honestly never been a fan of front routed guitars. To me, it seems that if I make too many adjustments to the electronics, then I'll wear out the wood and the pickguard won't fit back on.

Seems silly, I know
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

i interchange between both.

picks or plectrums? fretboard or fingerboard? tremolo or vibrato or WHAMMY LOLZ?

who really cares so long as we know what it's referring to?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I was taught to call it a pick guard, but scratch plate sounds cooler so I call it that.

Well the pickguard on my SG doesn't cover any electronics...
