I'm changing the pickguard on my les paul, and I was wondering if there was anything to be concerned about regarding the number of ply layers of the pickguard, besides whether it fits right or not. Someone told me that the pickguard could dampen sustain. Is that true? If so what level of ply would reduce the drain on sustain? Thanks before hand.
I'm pretty sure any difference it makes wouldn't be that noticable.
