Solo w/ a custom pickguard

Postby helldorado » Tue Sep 14, 2021 6:27 pm

Came across this one on Reverb. Looks like somebody did a custom pickguard and pickup arrangement on this Solo. I wonder if they did any routing for it and what it looks like without the pickguard. Actually works pretty decent with the Solo shape and pickup arrangement.

It's definitely one if the better customer pickguards I've seen for a Carvin/Kiesel that didn't originally come with one. I genuinely dig how it slopes to the bridge (although it bugs me it's of-center), but do think that gap would look better if it were reduced.

But overall? I think they did quite a nice job (assuming the under-the-guard area isn't a crime scene)

[edit: the way the pickguard doesn't go all the way out the horn reminds me a little of Vlnbow's HH2's custom-made pickguard:

Ngl that's one of the sexiest T style guitars I've ever seen.

Nice...I like it!
Reminds me a bit of my old Gilmour-themed Bolt:
