    Had it made by a guy who had some nice wood left over from another project.

    I dig the wooden pickguard!

    While I haven't modded any of the EBMM Valentine guitars I have certainly modded a few dozen of the Sterling JV60 model. Push/push coil splits, humbucker swaps & conversions, etc. We have some very special JV60 models in stock right now, modded with DiMarzios & with a little extra mojo put into them.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    I put a mirror pickguard on my maroon Valentine. Will try to post pics later. Looks a lot better IMO. Thinking about having an arm contour added to it and getting it re-painted.

    If you are brave enough to do that type of modification to your guitar, you must show us some pictures and start a thread. That would be so cool. Especially if you have Marty Bell sparkle the $hit out of it. Glittery pink comes to mind.

    I would be having it done by a great local luthier / guitar builder. A little nervous though about making that major of a change.
