I don't have any experience binding or working on acrylic for pick guards, so I can't say for sure, but that stuff does have very different working characteristics from the traditional celluloid I'm used to handling. I have noticed a greater tendency for acrylic to crack at screw holes when I've used it for clamping cauls or templates.
Thanks for the info, Frank!
I think I'll order some celluloid and make a pickguard to compare. Do you use celluloid nitrate or celluloid acetate and do you pair it with any particular type of plastic binding (ABS, PVC, etc)?
I sent an email to Delmar whom you mention as a source on frets.com.
I wonder if Lexan would crack like Lucite if used for templates and cauls?
LMI and Axiom also supply celluloid. . .
