The Easy Way to Make a Matte Black Pickguard

I needed a matte black pickguard with a single humbucker and fit for a Floyd Rose tremolo. The only option I had was to special order one. Instead I saved $20 by ordering a standard black pickguard and used a white super fine Scotch Brite pad to make the finish matte. In order to get the finish to look right, I only scoured lengthwise. Scouring in one direction gives the plastic the best finish. Do not swirl. 👍🎸
