    I agree. The way I play, I don't do big up and down strumming and there is really no need for a pick guard except to rest my pinky on. I'll need to ask Pinky if it's OK with him to remove the guard.

    I like to remove pick guards and put them in safe places to reinstall If I ever sell the guitar. Of course with my memory I now have a bunch of naked guitars and no idea where the guards are. Sucks trying to sell a NAKED 55 year old

    Wow, that's interesting!
    Is that both amplified and acoustic?
    Can you tell more about the Sound difference?

    I usually dislike pickguards and have taken them off of all my Gretsch guitars except for my latest one, the bamboo yellow double anniversary.
    For some Reason i don't mind the pickguard on the double anniversary, but i'm still thinking about removing it a Lot.
    I love the way it looks now and if i take the pickguard off i'll probably leave it that way.

    And btw i'm a heavy handed player, i'm very influenced by Punk Rock but i don't ruin my guitars without pickguards ....
    The pickguards are useless in my case 16319794141825314617190717038098.jpg
