    F-20 Pickguard Poll

    My rebuild project is about to be completed. The original pickguard couldn’t be used. If it was your guitar, AND you didn’t care about originality, AND you realize the soundhole is larger than original, what would you choose for a pickguard? Options, makers, and all opinions welcome.

    Train wreck F-20

    Hi all, This is my first post. Very glad to have found this forum. When I’m in my hometown I will often visit the shop of my guitar teacher from high school to catch up and see what he’s got. Occasionally I rescue something he doesn’t want to put a lot of work into. Most recently when I was...
