You will be there forever with a knife. And a soldering iron will just make a mess. Dremel about the most useful thing ever made.

Not to mention the danger in cutting something as hard as a pickguard with an exacto knife.

Not a good idea IMO.

no money for a custom pickguard
3 ply white-creme-white
with holes for 7 mini switches
routed for a vintage trem
with a a mini bucker in the neck, one in the bridge and a regular humbucker in the bridge

yeah thats not gonna be cheap

i use a router to make my pickguards. i bolt it to a big piece of wood, and i route into using templates. i do the holes with the drill press, and i do the 5-way slot with an exact/razor blade/ 1/32 drill bit.

check out terrapin guitars, it might not be too bad as the outline is standard and the service is great
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Dremels will just melt it. Use a hacksaw. That's what I use. Doesn't take forever and doesn't ruin the pickguard. Just drill a hole so the blade can fit through.


I was thinking more Dremel + Dremel router bit + plunge router accessory.
