As confirmed by RainSong on the phone, definitely no factory options for pick guards for the WS (or anything other than their 2 new releases).

Thanks for the replies in here. I will have to figure something out.

By the way, the poly finish on CF of a RainSong is more scratch resistant then any plastic pickguard. I've played my main beater without a pickguard for many months at a stretch and the scratch marks are only in my skin oil. They clean right off. That said I still usually put something on my guitars and they look fairly trashy reasonably quickly.

Here is a static cling one I had made for 12-fret RainSongs. I'll mail you one if that is something you are interested in.



There is a guy on eBay selling weak adhesive clear pickguards for a Taylor T5. I take his product and use an Xacto Razor Compass to cut the sound hole.



All these thin clear options scratch more easily than a real plastic pickguard.
Thanks man. I'll take a look soon, consider some of what you said here, etc...

Cool

10% on a 3500 CDN guitar is a lot of cash to leave on the table so if I order one Iím fairly committed in my mind. Iím pretty confident that I would not return anyway.
Wow! Doing a custom order, and still having a right to return is pretty amazing....
