On the epiphone goldtop les paul guitar there is that white pickguard. I was wondering if its easy to remove it? and if so is there any comsetic flaws that will be noticable? I've seen a gibson les paul goldtop without it and it looked x10 more sexy IMO.

Thanks.

unscrew it?
and there will be holes where thee screws were originally.
but i spose if you put the screws back in after youve taken the pickguard off, it will look pretty cool.

and if it doesnt I could always just put it back on and no harm done right? Im gonna be getting the $1,000 Etlist one so Im kinda worried about tampering with it.

If you don't want the screw holes (lol) there afterwards, you could fill them up... although that might look nasty.

What colour is the guitar? What colour are the screws?

Goldtop... right. What colour are the screws?

thats the guitar:

Nice. I'm sure it'll look fine if you keep the screws there. It's not like anybody's going to notice anyways.

Make sure you don't strip them though.

Pretty much be gentle unscrewing them right?

Yeah. Pretty much. Basic common sense.

I'm assuming you know how to screw/ unscrew screws without stripping them?
