    I'd like to use industrial mirror for a HSS strat project.

    I'm not clear on what you mean by "industrial mirror". You can get mirrored Plexiglas (acrylic) and make you own if you're interested.

    Yes, plexiglass is what I need. Does anyone cut custom pickguards from it though?

    Plexiglass is probably one of the easiest things to cut on a CNC, so yes, every pickguard joint can cut you a plexi guard.

    Mirror Stainless Steel and Chromed Brass pickguards are also easy to make by waterjetting

    Not personally ordered from them, but I've installed their products for others and they seem very nicely cut.

    If I need something custom, I usually cut it myself with a router

    Update - I found someone who can cut my pickguard. However, they need a 3D CAD file of it (STEP, IGES, or SLDPRT). Can anyone draw this? I can PM image with measurements.
