I recently purchased an Epiphone les Paul Special with p90 pickups, it sounds perfect, and feels good to play, only thing is, I don't like the way it looks so much without a pickguard, it looks just a little too Metal.

I've been looking around for pickguards online, and found this:
[forbidden link]

it's exactly the colour I want, but it says "Please note that this pickguard will only fit genuine Gibson® Les Paul® Special. This pickguard will not fit Epiphone®."

if anyone has any advice for me I'd really appreciate it.
