i have neva customized anything but i was wondering i have a ashton basic elctric i want to make it look like tom delonges guitar is it possible to put a pickguard on a guitar that has none? and also how do i paint it surf green
Yeah, you can put on a pickguard. Try finding some plastic laminate with the pattern you want. Painting it is just going to be a waste of time and money. It probably won't last more than a week or two of regular playing.
^ unless of course u get it done by a pro. But then u may aswell just get a propa fender strat then.

you might be able to find a car painter or smash repair shop that will paint it for free... my friends dad painted my old guitar... he was a colour mechanic
