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.

I liked the original shape:

I probably would play with some cardboard templates and see what the best shape is with the slightly larger diameter rosette. I still think you could recreate something similar to the original shape.
