Make sure to use paint for plastic ... Krylon, RustOLeum, etc. ... forms a molecular bond with the plastic, very tough.



I would also recommend sanding the pickguard with something in the area of 240 grit sandpaper to make a better bond. Lay down a few coats, go over it with steel wool, then do a final coat.

there is a reason that they call it RustOLeum and that is because it is made for metal..........

Since there is no such thing as perfect tone, and every rig has differences (however slight they may be), I hereby declare this claim as bullshit.

Latex paint won't stick to the plastic well at all, even if you give the PG a light sanding. Like a few others said If you must paint it use a decent paint made for plastic but test in on the back first. A lot of paints might react with the plastic they used for the pickguard and craze it. If you can find a place that makes signs with vinyl lettering and see if you can buy a peice of decal paper big enough and cover it! They make the vinyl (3M) in 100s of different colors, mirrored and carbon fiber prints. Then all you have to do is trim it with an Xacto knife. All that said I think the best bet would be to replace it though. What kind of guitar is it though? (Floydrose) I know you can buy pickguards for most Fenders and Gibsons but finding them for other brands can be hard.
