Why remove a pickguard? After 40 years and dozens of guitars, Iíve yet to remove a pickguard.

I just change the strings.

Funny, that was my main hesitation on installing,fear of damaging finish if I removed it. Then I realized I shouldn’t have any cause to remove it.

Yes. The teardrop pickguard and color is nice. If not, your guitar may look a bit too plain...

I posted about a PG for my 610e. I wish that I had at least installed the clear static pick guard. I don't believe that they are true Pick scratches, but my fingernails do come into contact with the area there on the top. Your guitar will benefit from using the pickguard. Satin finish?

Definite yes on the pickguard, whatever color you prefer.

I prefer no pickguards. I have a very delicate touch and prefer the appearance of all wood (and I told myself the tone would be a teeny tiny bit improved).

So I like without pickguards.....BUT.....I really like a small teardrop pickguard like yours and i actually think it looks better WITH that pickguard (which says a lot because I prefer no pickguards and didn't expect to like it better with it!)

Agreed. Needs a pickguard.
