    so I'm looking into getting a pickguard made for my RG8 but I dont have the tools to do it and all the websites I've been looking at need a scan of one. Anybody who's made one before (with normal humbuckers not the fugly soapbars they come stock with) have a scan or able to make one? A scan of a TAM pickguard would work fine too

    I've found templates but not ones with pot and switch holes. But I suppose I can just drill them myself, its just the cutting I cant do

    Good idea to print it out full size, cut it out, and test fit to make sure it’s the right size.

    When I made my RG8 pick guard I used a template I found online (but not that one) and it needed some modification to fit correctly.
