Hey all, I asked this question once before but never got a solid answer. I was wondering if any of you would have an idea of how to cut out the control plate part of a pickguard to be replaced with an alligator style brass control plate. The only response ive gotten was to trace the shape and use an exacto knife and just go at it untill its thin enough to just break off, but theres gotta be a simpler way. Any suggestions?
There are many kinds of cutting tools... if you are really inexperienced, and you want it to look really nice, take it to someone with the proper tools and experience... if you don't care for it to be just exactly perfect, get a fine hacksaw blade and go to it
Dude the issue is how well can you cut / shape the brass plate for the control plate. If the answer is infinitely well then you don't really care what the plastic cutter does. If the answer is my brass plate is shaped like x - I would take it along. it dictates the cut fer chur
what pickups are you going to us?
