    Hi everyone - first post here and stoked to be on board!

    I'm the proud owner of a PRS S2 Vela of about 4 weeks

    I was wondering if anyone has the exact dimensions for the afore mentioned pickguard?

    Saves me taking it off to measure it out as It's the only guitar I have in my house at the moment and I kinda wanna play it ahaha

    Pic of guitar of course

    Thanks in advance & hope to be a contributor to this community!

    Just for the dimensions so I can order some custom material...

    I'm from the UK & without paying over the top on import charges I'd prefer to just make my own (plus I might put some custom artwork on it)

    Just FYI (I'm not sure ultimately what color you're going for, but) the PRS Accessory Store sells perfect replacement pickguards for the S2 Vela in white, black, tortoise, and white pearl:
    https://us.prsaccessories.com/collections/s2-parts/products/s2-vela-pickguard?variant=13786452100

    Also, you might not see all the colors at first (my Chrome browser sort of hides them) but if you put your mouse pointer below the word "Color" and then move to the right, you'll find the other 3 non-white options.

    I looked on the PRS UK website and it appears they do not have any in stock

    Hi Casey,

    210mm x 297mm (A4 size) is the size pickguard material sheet you need to make for a Vela. It fits with a few mm over.

    I can heartily recommend Tiny Tone (Jacks instrument Services) for custom pick guards in the UK, my Vela “double bucker” guard is absolutely perfect.

    Hope this helps
    Cheers

    Also if it would help, I could send you a Vela pickguard to copy.

    Congrats on the new guitar! I’m (im)patiently waiting for a sunburst satin solid body myself. I’d love to hear your review/thoughts in the meantime!

    Congratulations and welcome to the forum.

    Looking forward to your new scratchplate thread, with “custom artwork”.
