That would be awesome. When I say Music Master I mean the 60's Mustang style guard, not the original one. So I think just a vintage correct Mustang guard with a single neck pickup cut out would be just dandy.
I've been looking for more sources for single pickup MM guards (1968 style). That would be killer.

I have a couple of mustang traces but nothing verified. If anyone is keen to have a look, pm me!

Wow! These look fantastic!

Do you do any custom colors?

Thinking of a midnight or navy blue for my J Mascis Jazzy.

You could get some very cheap/easy faux blue ano with one of the raw aluminum guards and some blue dyechem

Blue Dykem! That's such a good idea! They make it in red, too... it'd need a clear coat over top, prolly, but that's good thinking!
Being well dressed is never any indication of a person's possible inadequacies as a human. Being poorly dressed, however, often is.

How does one order one of these fine anodized pickguards?

Clear anodizing?!? So, it just looks like bare metal?

Does it still have the small/subtle ridges/texture like most anodizing does?

Have any pictures of one of the clear anodized guards? I'm thinking that a vintage-yellowed Firemist silver with clear anodized guard would look KILLER.
