  • After removing the strings from the tuning pegs, slide the strings through the bridge and out of the back of the guitar.

  • If the twists in the string ends are in the way, use wire cutters to snip them off. This will allow the heavier strings to pass through the bridge easier.

  • While it is not necessary to remove the potentiometer knobs in order to remove the pickguard, it is much easier to remove them while the pickguard is attached to the guitar.

  • The knobs are removed simply by pulling up on them. Be mindful not to pry too much, as older components may feel stuck at first, and you do not want to break the pickguard, knob, or potentiometer.

  • As with the knobs, the switch cap may be removed prior to removing the pickguard.

  • Grip the cap firmly, and pull up to remove it from the switch. Be aware that the switch may move, and to be careful so that you do not break it.

  • Gently lift up on the pickguard. With the screws removed, it should be loose, and easily pulled off of the guitar body.

  • Carefully rotate the pickguard away from the guitar. Notice the electronics. There is a wire that runs through the body to the output jack.

This process describes only how to access the internals of the guitar — how to MOVE the pick guard. NOT how to actually REMOVE it, as indicated in the title. And removing it is what is required if we were talking about 'removing the pick guard...to change the style,' as noted in the introduction.
