I'm wanting to paint over my pickguard but i'm not sure whats the best way to go at this.

is their anyway I can just remove the pickguard and reattach it after its done? because i'm thinking of having this girl who does crazy work paint it and I really dont want to just hand my whole guitar over and tell her to go to town.

any help is appreciated.

edit: the guitar is a yamaha fg700s.
generally, all pick guards can be removed... you will most likely need to remove the pickups and electronics from it
if u get some steam u might be able to get the glue to let go, then u would just have to reglue the pickguard. im not 10% sure that it will work but im pretty sure it will
Make sure that when she paints it, there arent huge lumps on it from the paint.
