hey guys,

at the moment i'm thinking about a golden strat with birdseye neck as my first Warmoth project and i found -in my opinion- perfectly looking pickguard at the WDmusic.com-shop.

The problem is that there is a comment which says that this is only a simulated picture and i can't find a real pic of this.
I don't want the pickguard to look like the anodized fender pickguard, i like this "heavily" striped pattern on the simulated pickguard.

Does anybody know how this pickguard looks in real? (i don't think so, but maybe there's someone)

I made a little image editing and a put golden warmoth body and the pickguard together. I think this roughness creates a noble, but not kitschy look, what do you think?

I like that.  Great concept.

Haven't seen the pickguard for real though, so I can't comment on that.

To me, you have to balance the 'bling' of the gold and birdseye with something more traditional, like a b/w/b or maybe cream pickguard. On the other hand, this guy
went the other way: http://www.unofficialwarmoth.com/index.php?topic=2022.0
If it looks good to you, definitely get the pickguard, it's easy to change if you later want to get something else.

Mhm yeah i like that guitar, but it's a way too much. I wanna get a thing between your guitar and this one, classic with a modern noble touch.

I read your signature. I was born in Bad Canstatt. I'll try not to be mean to you.

I live in Texas now, but I'll always be Deutsch.

Wie gehts? Mir gehts gut.

That's the extent of my German, I've lost it all. I used to speak it like a native.

We get all our great Texas sausage from our German immigrants! Not to mention the beer.

Mmmmm. Beer.

You might be able to pull that off on a black body, the goldtop is a little much for me, personally...

This one might look pretty  cool on the gold body too.....

that might look cool but i wouldn't want any pesky eddy currents messing with my tone, i'll stick with plastic pickguards and pickup cover.

Mir geht's auch gut :)

This fascination of german beer and sausages is quite funny :D


Well, my strat won't be a warmoth... My guitar teacher gave me a pretty ugly guitar http://www.guitarfarm.de/images/p1020229.jpg for testing, but this thing has TONE o.o. It's hand built by a local guitar builder and because of my teacher I got this thing for little money. So at the end I fell in love with it and so now it get's contoured heel, a humbucker on the bridge position, Candy Apple Red finish and golden hardware. (I love the ABM brigde).
Finally I hope this thing will look like this:
