I've been gigging with my Angelus full time now for about 8 or 9 weeks. Although I don't use a flat pick I do use finger-picks. I'm gettin some fairly serious, what I'd call dents, probably from the tips of the metal first and second finger picks. I'm decidedly NOT a careless or rough right hander but the dents are obvious and the implications seem to be if I'm gonna gig with this guitar I'm gonna have to do something.

I took it to my repair guy and he was very hesitant to go with a clear pick--guard (my first choice) as he felt at this point it would highlight the dents. That leaves of course some sort of tortaloid-ish pick-guard.

Thoughts on putting a pick-guard on an Angelus???
