unless you prime it first the paint will come right off. even then you'd want to seal it some way.
though the look of the scratched off paint might look pretty cool if thats your cup of tea.

ill paint it straight on first them hit it a few times with a pick and if it starts to come off ill strip it, the prime it paint it then seal it

scuff up the white pickguard with lets say 400 grit sand paper then do two-three light coats of black paint. use krylon brand its sticks to plastic very well. After the black coat is down scuff it up with 800 grit sand paper then clear coat with either transparent satin or gloss depending on how shiny you want it. Do about 5 clear coast with light sanding between. in the end you will have a tough , durable, and robust finish that will stay on the pickguard.
