Description

8 Hole Pickguard for Fender Telecaster w/neck pick up mounting holes.

This was so close to fitting on my MendelMax 1.5, but ultimately I had to split it up to be able to print it.

I'm still using my Prusa MK1 PCB heated bed, so if your bed is larger than that, you should be good with the full pickguard.

Hey can I ask what your method was for making this? I'm trying to make a pickguard for my Fender Strat, and I tried outlining it with a spline and then extruding it, then I made cylinders/other shapes for the screw holes and pickup holes and used a boole to subtract them out from the pickguard, but that resulted in crazy geometry that was just a mess. Yours looks pretty clean. I can't think of an easy way to do it... Im using Cinema 4D, should I be using a more engineering focused program? Thanks for any tips!
The pickguard is just laying on my telecaster in the picture and was not glued together. I think blue is a terrible color for this, but black, white, or natural probably wouldn't look too bad.
