    #1. What is that sticking out from the Bigsby spring cup?

    I don't like the hole on #2, so #1. Although I like the black pickguard. Hmm...

    I think the dice are a bigger problem. I get that it's a thing--just not my thing.

    I love a clear guard on orange, I have one on my 5420, but on your guitar, I think the black looks right.

    I’m wondering that two.
    Btw I like #2 I don’t like pick guards so clear is better and I just like the look of that one

    #2, I like the hole for some reason. Kind of a Rat Rod/ junkyard thing with me.

    #1 gets my vote, there’s another guy with a guitar that looks like the second one.

    It’s a stabilizing brace to keep the Bigsby in tune. I kinda came up with it on a whim.

    #1 for me. I’ve never cared for seeing the brackets that hold the pick guard on the clear ones. I’drather just remove it altogether if I were to go that route. It looks cleaner.

    You really did a great job on the guitar.

    I originally wanted to make it look very Setzer but I’m going for a cleaner pro line look.
    Wouldn’t happen to be any one out there with one of these for sale would there?

    I like the black pickguard look, so it's #1 for me.

    Not a fan of stickers myself. Not really grooving either PG, I'd go parchment or silver. But it's not my guitar.

    The 2nd one because you can give your guitar a name (mine I call Gretchen) and point to the sticker and say "This is she".
