I bought a 60's Epiphone Bard 12-string on eBay at Christmas.Only slight fault was the pickguard was lifting.Took it to my friendly neighbourhood luthier,who loved the guitar and suggested(as I expected) double-sided sticky tape.
But when I lifted it enough to get the tape in place the plastic wrinkled- it looked worse & wouldn't stay stuck down.Anyway,now I have located some sheet torty plastic to change the pickguard on my Epi El Dorado(68 screw on-missing) & would like to change the one on the Bard also.
I have changed loads of pickguards on newer guitars ,but these older ones were "cemented"to the top and the finish applied afterwards.
I'm a picker,not a luthier & I'm not looking to refinishing the top or any other costly options-the old guard will obviously be easy to remove & the replacement will not be self-adhesive,so any advice/suggestions welcome.
