Hi all! My first post here: I bought a version 2 Westone Rainbow II the other day and am smitten.. great guitar. Only thing keeping it from being pretty much original though is the missing pickguard. Does anybody know where a replacement could be found? or can I fit it with any other 335 339 esque pickguard replacement? thanks in advance for any info and glad to be on board!

It fits between the pickups 61mm. You may have to file a little bit to get it perfect. The problem is the hole for the bracket is in the wrong place and the bracket won't 'bend' to fit.

I happen to have one right next to me at the moment. I'll post a photo of a mod. in a short while.

Just make a little bridge ala Hofner style.
Could drill another hole in the body for the bracket but don't like doing that.
Fits nice and tight.
