Ok. I'm thinking about getting a Gibson SG faded. I was wondering if it is possible to take the pickguard off and put the older style half pickguard like the reissues have. You would have to get some pickup mount thingys right? It might have some screw holes but i don't care.
i think sg's look **** without the full pickguard

if the new pickguard came from another gibosn guitar im sure it would fit
i have the faded, and the pickguard on it acts as the pickup rings (i.e. its holding the pickups in) so unless u get pickup rings for it, no. if u get rings, u can.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
They stopped asking
Yeah i figured I would have to get the rings. But if I did it should look alright.
I'm not 100%, but under the pickguard, isn't most of it routed out??
If it is, it will look like ****e. Otherwise, you just might be able to pull it off.
