    Congrats Nigel. One fine looking G5420T you have there.
    I keep my pickguards on but I play heavy handed. That one looks good either way.

    Hell yeah!
    Congrats man!
    Yeah, I’d keep that guard off, or replace it with a clear or gold.
    And yes, we all need at least one orange Gretsch!

    That guitar is a great score. 5420's are pretty amazing at the price point. Great, great value. I especially love the blue ones.

    Orange for the win! That one looks great, and even better without the pickguard. But if you are a flailing maniac like I am, I would recommend one for the protection value.

    Nice score Nigel, I'm with everyone on this and saying pick guard off, it seems to work on this one.

    Congratulations, it looks sweeeeeet.
    And pickguard off looks better.

    And now it feels like you just have triggered a new "gas for an orange hollow body" period for me...

    Gorgeous! HNGD. For orange guitars with silver guards, I say pickguard off.
