    The antithesis of the Grisby has begun.. the bastage son of Grigsby. Thank you Paul Setzer for this sweet pickguard

    Very nice. I liked that crack paint look - we have coffee table like that. Or is that just an old body?

    Tavo, sorry to hijack your thread with this question: somewhere on G-T I think you said that a way to remove the clear plastic feet on your pedals was to touch a soldering iron to the metal near the feet briefly, which will heat the metal near the feet and they will fall off due to the glue melting slowly. Is that right? Was it a hair dryer? Sorry to ask here, but I've searched the threads and can't find that info.

    wow!! that was not me. if you do that you will instantly melt throught the painted finish. Use a hair dryer and a high E string from a set of 9's. Or a small fine "bent" Icing/frosting knife like I use to remove pickguards on acoustics

    Ok, it was the hair dryer - I just remember some sort of heating element. Thank you! I don't want to hurt my baby!

    anything you did with a sharpie I would put in a frame on the wall!!

    being serious about the pkguard.. I sort of reshaped an existing pickguard that I'd commissioned TK Smith to make for a gretsch spectrasonic that I had.
