6 String RG Pickguards
Available in three mounting hole patterns. The widest selection of materials and configurations at a fraction of the price of factory guards and MADE IN THE USA!!!!
Please allow 5-10 business days to build your custom guard.
Info on Mounting hole patterns
Despite popular belief, unless one is willing to drill new mounting holes, there is no one-size-fits-all RG style pickguard. There are three main patterns that exist.
Generally speaking, Patterns one and two are typically found on Japanese models (there is very little difference between the two). Pattern three is reserved for the lower-end Korean and Indonesian models. Please be aware that this is only a generalization and there can often be exceptions.
Above you will find thumbnails that link to printable templates of these patterns. These templates have all the critical features on them to verify that the pattern/general control placement will fit your guitar. If you do not mind performing simple modifications (ie- drilling new, non-invasive pickguard mounting holes), it will not be as important to check the template. If you do not have the resources available to perform simple modifications or have a collectible guitar that can not be modified it is absolutely critical that you take the time to check these templates to your guitar to verify the correct fit.
What if you do not have a printer to check the template?
Don't have a printer to check the template? For a nominal fee, we can precision cut a cardboard template for you to check the fit before committing to a custom pickguard. Please choose all of your options on the build menu and select "cardboard template" for material type. We will send you a cardboard template of the available pattern/pickup/control configurations that you have chosen from the menu.

The pick guard is better quality than the original and for the price you can’t beat it.
The turnaround was fast with no issues. The PG is a little different from the original which means the hole were not in the same place as the original other than that it worked great and looks awesome.
Thanks, Perle guitars looking forward to doing more business with you

I ordered a pickguard cut with strat single coil setup. It was shipped very quickly and looks great. Pickups line up great with the strings. It actually seems to be better quality than the stock pickguard.
If you are thinking of doing this. Just note that you may have to modify the cavity beneath the pickguard depending on the pickups you choose. I used seymour duncans that were larger (depth) than standard fenders pickups.

Absolutely perfect. I can't say a single bad thing about the product or the support. Nate got back to me super fast when I wanted to change a spec with no issues. The pickguard fit absolutely perfectly. It's exactly what I wanted and now the guitar is truly one of a kinda. Bravo. I'll definitely be ordering from Mr. Perle whenever I need something Ibanez related.

If it's quality you're after, you're here. If you already verified placement with his template.. then do yourself a favor and stop waiting.
