PTC Custom Pickguard Design For JA-15 Model

Posted Sep 03, 2014

Behind The Gear

A heavy picking Nashville artist wanted to protect his beloved JA-15 from pick scratches on the finish. The PTC team jumped at the opportunity to design a floating-style pickguard for the guitar!

In a short period of time, they were able to create something that looked aesthetically pleasing, yet didn’t call for any additional holes to be drilled into the guitar. After the pickguard was shaped and hand cut, the pickup rings were notched to allow the pickguard to slide underneath. The pre-exsiting pickup ring holes were used to fasten the pickguard to the body.


Here is another JA-15 in a different finish with the same pickguard design!

The customer was happy and the PTC logged another successful job! If you’re interested in custom work or upgrades for your PRS guitar, you can learn more about our PTC by clicking HERE.
