Thanks for all these recommendations,

I amplified my 1943 L-50 with a loaded pickguard, built specificallyto fit it, and including a slim pickup, volume knob and 1/4" jack. Mounts using the two screws that held the old pickup. No modification of the guitar is requred.

It sounds great, looks great. And, best of all, when not playing plugged in, I get the wonderful fully-carved tone of an old Gibson archtop.

I had the loaded pickguard custom made by this guy on Reverb:

A few nice ones, a few beaters, and a few I should probably sell...
