I took my pickguard off the guitar, because I thought it looked ugly. Should I put the screws back in just to fill the holes? Can something malicious get inside my guitar and screw it up?
Wood filler + paint
Just curious, what sort of guitar is it?
Schecter Tempest Blackjack.
I would just put the screws back on. You could always fill them and paint over them, like darkwolf291 suggested, but I wouldn't do that in case I ever want to put the pickguard back on.
Why not craft up a plexiglass pick guard?
put the screws in and color match the heads to the body so basically you have the option of putting the pickgaurd back on if you want (keeping it original basically) but hiding the screws by matching the color.
+1 for wood filler + paint.....
