SX Bass Project Part 2 - make a new pickguard

I considered ordering a new pickguard from Stew Mac, but but thought I'd try making my own first. First I traced the stock guard...

... and then scanned using my letter-size scanner. I took the images into AutoCAD and traced again digitally.

I sent the file to Ponoko for making. For $20 shipped I get one black acrylic guard. Let's hope the dimensions are accurate. Once I confirm the size is correct, I will make the SVG and DWG files available online.
