You have to buy brackets. Look at pictures of other LP's

so i buy the brackets, so its gonna cost less than £10

i found Stewart-McD's website and crome bracket(with crome hardware on my guitar already) for £2, im guessing i should go with a white pickguard, look better i think

There may be an issue with the volume knob getting in the way of the scratchplate.

You can get smaller pickguards for LP's The one on my epi is smaller than that. Check ebay.

i would, but earlier i ordered a bracket and pickguard, it might be the right size becuase it isnt a gibson pickguard or anything, i ordered it on axesrus(google it i cant remember the webadress)

pickguard came, and i spent half an hour filing the corner down and the bit between the pickups so it would fit snug(is was slightly to big that area) and ive cut it down around the volume pot, but you cant tell, if you want a picture ill put one up later
