Does anyone know if I would be able to get a custom made pickguard anywhere and approxametly how much it would cost? I put new single coils in my one guitar (which I love) but I replaced the bridge humbucker with a single coil and the pickguard I bought does not properly fit (the bottom of the pickguard actually moves off the guitar and the screws don't line up properly with the holes in my guitar) I was thinking of taking it to a local shop and see if there's anything they can do but I'm afraid of them overcharging me.

I was thinking of building one of my own but it might be pretty tricky to make it look nice.

If you are even a bit handy with basic tools, I'd say give it a shot.
Pick up a cheap (some under $10) replacement pickguard and give it a try.
If something does go horribly wrong, you still have your original to take to someone (or try again).

Maybe someone knows of a reputable shop they can recommend that is local to you (wherever that is)

If you want to be able to change the look of your pickguard without removing the strings or electronics then you might want to check out riff-master.com

They helped me out with my custom guard. hey have all the funky graphic stuff but they can also do pearloids and regular 3-plys if you ask.
