I have an image I want to put on my pickguard. What's a good way to transfer an image onto a pickguard, and whats a good paint or spray to use?

Thanks for any advice.

i have a vinyl cutter that i use to do designs - i made an outline from a scanned pickgaurd and then i just change it around when i'm tired of it.

but if you're gung-ho on using paint, anything that sticks to plastic is suitable

according to my issue of Total Guitar Magazine April 2007 (hehe yeah i collect) there is a process...

1) print out the image you wanna stick on your pickguard
2) cut it out with a craft/X-Acto knife
3) fix the cut out image onto your pickguard
4) spray it with car paint (doesn't say what kind)

perhaps i should mention that they did this to the body of the guitar, but i see no reason why it wouldn't work on a pickguard.

Find someplace that does clear pickguards. Lots of places do as long as you have a common guitar. Print out the picture in hi-res and put it under. You won't have to worry about it ever again and it's constantly changeable.

Krylon makes a paint that bonds with plastic. Try that out.
