Lay the pick guard on the guitar as a template, mark where the new holes are going to go with a wax pencil.

Remove the pick guard and get a drill with a bit that has a slightly smaller diameter than the screws used on the pick guard. Drill a small pilot hole in the body (do not drill deep, this hole is used only to guide the screws in), then put the pick guard on and screw the screws into place to secure the pick guard (by only driling a small piolt hole the screws will grip the wood and hole the pickguard in place).

Good finally something that's as simple as Thought it would be. When I take the old Pickguard off I know I can just unscrew the pickups then screw it into the new one. How do I take everything else off?
