The good thing about the pickguard is that it's fairly easy to remove. I've made a template, so I'll be swapping guards as the fancy takes me. Just waiting on some red glitter sheet to arrive in the post.... The bridge saddles are solid as a rock, no rattles at all, but the bridge does rock backwards and forwards on the posts if you're over enthusiastic with the trem. I like that Casper the Friendly Ghost vibe in your pic, looks very classy. Bob seems like a decent chap to deal with, too.
