Well I have been out of work since November of last year finally got a job doing stock for a big box store. Went to work doing stock in wearhouse and was moving some 24 inch x 24 inch acrylic sheets out of the way and asked the boss were toput them. Was told the dumpster or take them. There was about 20 of them with plastic protective film still on so home they came now have pickguard material for a long time to come. Good start to a job and saved the planet to boot win / win for me.

Nice find. How thick are the sheets? Just courios. I have some acrylic laying around here somewhere and that idea never dawned on me.
1/4 inch thick just belvel the edge and paint the backside with spray paint for plastics and good to go.
Thanks, sounds like agreat idea. The piece I have is a little thiner then that. I'll give it a go.
