I decided to customize my pickguard recently, and here's how it turned out. The body paint was also starting to wear off (because my guitar doesn't have a finish), so I lightly relic'd/accent'd the places where it was starting to fade.

I sketched the design out with pencil first, and then got a pen-grip type X-Acto knife and etched it out, so it wouldn't just smear away later. I etched tiny lines in the places where I wanted solid color, and it retained most of the color where I wanted it.

All coloring was done with "special" permanent markers (a little stronger than Sharpies, xD) and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Questions, comments, complaints, announcements?

It'd look a lot better if the pick guard was black then you did all the coloring.

Well, I'm not exactly sure how I could get those colors on a black pickguard... It's the stock pickguard anyways.

Yeah, it's not the most beautiful or best custom pickguard ever, but it's a reflection of my personality, and now, no one can say they own a Flying V just like mine. xD
