I have a cheap Squire guitar, and it has that white pick guard-ish thing. Me, being the ass i am, went and drew with colored sharpie all over it. Anyone know how i can get it off with household items?

Take off the strings and use a slightly damp rag and just scrub your pickguard. Sharpie isn't very hard to get out unless it's on clothing.

i took the pick guard off, but ill try that.

hey denatured alcohol has never failed me when it comes to permanent marker and plastic. :/

anyways it seems more likely to have around the house than whiteboard dry erase marker

its mostly ethanol. i could say rubbing alcohol but rubbing alcohol is meant for skin and you may need something a bit stronger

ill just paint it. Much simpler.

If it's got a backplate then it sounds like you've got a Squire Strat.

The 11-hole American Strat pickguard will fit it almost perfectly. The only hole that won't quite make it is the last hole at the end near the bottom tone control. If you don't like the empty hole then you can glue a screw into it, put a small piece of cork or wood behind it to anchor the screw, or just put a 1/4 inch wood block at the bottom of the pocket (yes, it's THAT close).

You can get an 11-hole 3-ply pickguard at any decent music store for around $20. I'd say the time you've spent on this already is worth at least that much.

For the backplate, you can get a COMPLETE accessory kit for $15. It includes a backplate, three pickup covers, knobs, switch tip, and trem arm tip, all color coordinated.

I fixed up a Squire Strat that a friend got as his first guitar. He'd glued "happy face" gift wrap paper over the pickguard, and had stickers all over the rest of the guitar. I made it look practically new with 20 minutes on the orbital sander, a rattle can paint job, and less than $40 worth of plastic.
