. Looks good.
Absolutely love the pickguard and how it pretty much hides the bracket. It was my only disappointment with this guitar(not enough to not buy it though). Always seemed to be a bit flimsy to me as well. I like the cutouts for the pups adjusting screw. Well done.
I'm sure there's a few of us here that would love to purchase one of those pickguards!
Jacks instrument service did a great job on it. I sent them a card template and a pic of a G6228, arrived two weeks later . I’m sure Paul Setzer could make one just as good. Since I put the pictures up on the forum I’ve upgraded the jack socket to a switch raft one.
Can you tell me the exact thickness of your custom-made pickguard ? (in mm no issue)
It seems that the margin for thickness is shallow. Here are the pictures of my G5220 :
Thanks to let me know how thick is your new pickguard, as accurately as possible, so I can compare.
If it had the script logo and Filtertrons(well I guess the bright white binding is a giveaway too), I’d almost think it really was a 6228.
This looks so great, nice work.
I have a G5220 in dark cherry arriving next week and since you've done all the hard work with creating the template, I may well piggy back your effort and see if they can make another one. They could do a whole batch going by how many people would probably want to put one on their guitar. I like the fact Gretsch moved the 'Electromatic' label to the pick guard rather than the headstock but these 5220's are so good I think they deserve a clean pick guard too!
Hi just measured it, its 2.5mm.
I could take my new pickguard off and trace around it for you if you like. The new pickguard was quite expensive for what it was but they made a superb job of it. I got a quote from KGB music in Birkenhead but it was nearly double.
Fine, 2.5mm : I note it - thanks Marktheblues !
So that's +1mm, he original G5220 pickguard being 1.5mm.
