Yamaha SG 85 Pick Guard

Unread post by baaron31 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:32 pm

Just acquired an SG85 to add to the collection but unfortunately the pick guard was missing. My plan is to see if i can purchase a used one or get an outline drawing to cut a new one. If any one can help with above it will be greatly appreciated.

I would help but i am away from home for few months where my 85 is at. My sg 65 probably will match so i can give you measurements after work

Thanks Asmikace! No rush and i believe the 65 and 85 would have the same pick guard. Was also thinking to source some nice rosewood to cut the pick guard out of it.

They should be same size wise but the 85 had a nice wood pickguard that gives it the extra class. Hope you post a picture of it here

Sorry for the delay. I had to move to a work place but will find my tape measure and give you measurements.
