Okay I'm actually John from South Louisiana but it sounded good.
How to remove the pick scruffs off the pick guard?
Welcome to the forum, nice guitar you have there, not sure on the best way to remove pick guard scratches so I'm sure someone will chime in with some advice soon.
How ya doin'? Welcome to the madhouse.
The guard is there to keep the scratches off of the guitar itself. It's far easier to replace the guard than refinish the guitar. In England, they're called the scratch plate. It's expected that you'll scratch them.
Welcome, John. I've used a rotary polisher with a foam pad and good automotive polish.
Welcome, and excellent Streamliner!
This might be a stupid question, but does the pickguard still have the plastic on it?
Also, that baby would look darn good sans guard.
Welcome to Gretsch-Talk, John!
That's a good looking 2622TG, and am I right that it looks like the finish is a red sparkle?
Welcome to the forum, John!
I know how to get to your house:
Welcome to Gretschville!
That was my first thought too . ..... Welcome to the forum friend
Hey John I’m in Kenner, where y’at ?
Welcome to GT John!
Congrats on the geet too.
My suggestion; If you want a perfect pickguard, buy a replacement and keep it in the guitar case, carefully wrapped in a soft cloth. And play the heck out of that guitar!
ahh eeee !
brought you self in da house !
glad to have you here. as Nick asked, where are you at in "dear ol' Luzianne" ?
I was born and raised in Baton Rouge and I hope to get back down there some day before very long.
Hello John and welcome to G-T, glad to have you join us.
I've never tried to clean up the scratches so I won't offer any advise.
Welcome to Gretsch-Talk and congratulations on your beautiful G2622.
I'm with @calebaaron666 here : if you don't usually make yourself lots of scratches, you should consider just getting rid of the pickguard.
Not red sparkle, it's Candy Apple Red, has a semi-gloss (I suppose I would describe it) finish, but no sparkle flakes. That's the morning sun coming through the window on the east shining on it.
Yeah I realize much better the guard than the guitar.... I wonder where can one find a "Gretcsh" brand replacement of does one just go with whatever may be out there at the point where the scratches are just unbearable! I mean, if it were a strat, I'd just let it age like SRV.
South of Lafayette, my hometown is Lafayette, but I'm out here in the Rice Fields now so I can crank stuff up.
I had the plastic on for a while but once it started fraying at the edges, I peeled it.
