    Question Where can I get a replacement Y2D pickguard?

    As above - my Y2D used to be a demonstrator model for shows here in the UK for the British EBMM distributor, Strings and Things. As a result, it's seen a lot of play wear on the pickguard - the rest of the guitar is in lovely condition, but I'd like a replacement guard. Any suggestions where in the UK I can get a replacement, clear guard?

    If you have some buffing compound, you could always polish it.

    That's the only positive search result I'd found, but couldn't see a clear option. Worth contact if no luck with Strings & Things in the UK, though!

    I think these are probably too deep, aside from a small scratch under the Floyd, it's pretty much the only flaw on the whole guitar.

    I've got to contact the UK distributor anyway - no allen wrenches in the case, so I might start there...

    Thanks everyone!

    They definitely have "clear" - because I've ordered that from them - in a custom hybrid between "standard" and Y2D Morse even.

    So, even though they're Yanks, they're easy work with!

    Unless the UK has different rules or itís a Strings and Things thing, EBMM hasnít included Allen wrenches with their guitars for a long time.

    Even for their Floyd-equipped guitars?
