custom pick guard

I have an old Apollo Japanese offset short scale 12 string that I'm working on- it's a mess. Some questions: Anyone ever had a custom made pickguard made from an old pickguard or template- where did you go and what did it cost?

Pickguardian here too - I sent an original (Hofner Galaxie Reissue) that wasn’t available in the “template libraries” anywhere I could find, and he copied it perfectly, and included my requested modifications as well (different control layout, different pickups, and modifications to the contours to make it closer to the 1960s versions). Fit *perfectly* with no adjustments or cleanup work needed.
