DIY: The Time I Made My Own Guitar Pickguard for Under $10

Using a little bit of creativity, I decided to create my own guitar pickguard out of a bit of stencil. All the items I used were under $10 for this fun little project of mine. Read here to find out how I did it.

I'm going to start by saying that a lot of my guitar maintenance repairs and projects that I do is all trial and error. I write down and record everything that I do to my guitar to find out what works and what doesn't work. So when I decided to start my own DIY (do it yourself) project to make my own pickguard for my guitar, I went on and wrote it all down in case I ever wanted to make another one in the future. After the project was done, I later decided to share my little project with the world so I went and grabbed all of my notes and posted them online. So if you want to make your own pickguard for under $10, this is how you do it.

What you will need

I went with some basic transparent Blank stencil because it was cheap and didn't look too bad on my guitar, and it would hold up for what I had in mind. You can buy blank Stencil for about $4.00 at stores like Joann fabrics or Michaels, they always have deals where you can use a coupon and buy a product for 50% off, so I actually got it for around $2.11. You can also look around at your local hobby store for all the materials you need.

Making the outline

If you are like me and you want to make a cheap simple pickguard to keep scratches off your guitar, go for blank 8x10 Stencil. You can get a three pack made by Plaid that works great for around $4.00.

(And as said above, Michaels has those awesome coupons!)

Start by drawing your pickguard outline on a white sheet of paper. I actually held the paper up to my guitar sound hole and used a pencil to trace a half circle on the paper so that I knew where my pickguard would fit on my guitar. I then drew out about four different pickguards and cut them all out with scissors. Be creative and come up with any design you want.

After you have your paper pickguards place them all on your guitar and find the one that came out the best. Make sure you really take your time making this outline so that it looks perfect, because this outline will be used as your guide for your final product.

Putting it all together

As mentioned earlier, I used blank Stencil for my pickguard. So to start I took two sheets of the Stencil and put them on top of each other making sure they were completely even. I then taped the corners together so that it wouldn't move out of place. Two stencil sheets are a little bit less than 2mm thick, but it would serve well for my basic purpose.
-Note: before taping, if you don't want it to be transparent you can try painting the inside of one of the stencil sheets, don't do both because you probably don't want the paint touching your guitar because it might come off and leave marks. Painting only one of the stencils will leave the other layer of blank stencil as a wall between the paint and your guitar. My own pickguard came out to be a dull white color that was only slightly transparent when I finished, I thought it looked fine so I left it as it was without any paint.

Next I placed my paper outline on the center of my blank Stencil and held it in place. I put on my safety goggles and carefully used my X-acto knife to begin cutting the shape of my pickguard out of my two layer stencil sheets. Alternatively you could draw the outline onto the Stencil using a pencil, but I could hardly see my pencil marks and I couldn't stay on the line. Using your fingers to hold the paper outline in place is dangerous, but it was a bit easier for me to trace the design. Never use an ink pen because the ink marks will show up on your final product. And never place your fingers too close to your knife. You started this project with twenty digits, so let's end it with twenty!

After the stencil was cut out I used superglue to very carefully glue the edges of the two stencil pickguards together. I didn't do big globs of glue; I did very thin string like tendrils to hold the edges together. I didn't put any glue in the center of the stencil because it was transparent and it would have showed up as big globs, which is why I also don't use the gel glue because it shows up a lot more than the standard liquid glue. I then let my pickguard dry so that it would hold together as one piece.
voila, all done!

After the two layers of stencil were dry I put one last final thin layer of superglue around the inside edges of the pickguard, all the way around from end to end. Again, don't put any glue in the center. I then very carefully placed the pickguard onto my guitar and let it dry.

I later peeled my pickguard off of my guitar quite easily and noticed that it didn't leave a lot of sticky gunk behind. That is one of the benefits of using cheap dollar glue for this project, it doesn't hold very well!

The glue is just strong enough to keep it in place, but if you ever want it off it is pretty easy to just peel off and wipe the old glue off. I actually pulled the glue off with my fingers just fine and it didn't leave any mess behind.

Well that is about it.
That was how I made my own guitar pickguard for less than ten dollars. If you want to see the final product scroll through the five pictures located at the top of this article to see how it came out.
