  • Vinyl pickguard

    So I got this pickguard and control plate made out of Pink Floyd's The Wall on vinyl. Pretty slick, as it's one of my faves, Gilmour is my spirit animal, and he plays a Tele on some of the songs. Goshen Guitar Works was great to work with via text and email.

    Anyone else used a vinyl record pickguard? Anything to watch for during install or regular use? He said it's flimsy so use hand tools. I was going to check the taper of the PG screws, but he said he countersinks the holes so the stock screws will work. And he warned me the control plate wouldn't hold up under aggressive knob use, so that'll be my own risk.

    If\when I remember, pics of the install will come!

      Might want to sheild and ground the back of it. I think if it's a real vinyl album it will pick up static from your hands strumming.

      I did find the DS-1 in the garbage.
      I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

        Do you mean ground with it's own ground wire, or just use the standard method of tape in cavity + tape on PG + tape over a screw hole?

          If you ground a cavity, you still need to solder/connect it to ground somehow, or it won't be a shield so much. Particularly if you are trying to draw a static charge out of the pickguard. You have to give the charge somehwere to go.

                I'm guessing Goshen Guitar Works: https://www.goshenguitarworks.com
