Hi all,

I was wondering how many people call what what. I personally call them scratch plates, mainly because it makes sense and pick guard doesnt, i was first intoduced to them as scrath plate so thats what i call 'em.

Anyway vote
Pick guard makes sense. It guards the finish from your pick. *shrugs* I call it a pick guard.

You know you're a bassist when you think a guitar is just some freaky type of short scale, six string bass.

No one cares, but aren't we all bored? Why are you sitting online if you have something to do.

I call them pickguards. That makes much more sense than scratch plates. They are there to guard the body from the pick. That is their job. You don't intentionally try to scratch them... thats what job scratch plate conveys to me anyways.
