Its part of the case candy.

Thers not alot of guys here who would have the heart to drill those holes into their baby.

 

I couldn't bring myself to drill holes, but prefered the look of the pickguard. I purchased one of Bobby Lee's screwless pickguards and it works great.

That's a cool idea! Does it flex and hit the body, or place any undue pressure on the mount if your hand strike the guard while playing?

I took the pickguard off my first Les Paul in the early nineties while cleaning it.

Liked the way it looked, played it without, and never put it back on.

 

4 Les Pauls later, I have no pick guards on either of mine.

Don't really need it.

And thanks Aaresz

 

Your Welcome! The pickguard works great for me, and without the rubber bumber too. I don't mean to engage in the pickguard / no pickguard conversation but I do prefer the historic look, and tend to rest my fingers in that area at times.

 

As a side note Bobby Lee I just read that you used to make paintball gun grips. Before my body gave in to age I was a pretty active player on the NPPL circuit. I wonder if we've ever met in a previous life, or if I used you grips?
