Don't know if this is something your client would be interested in...it's 7/8 inches long and sterling silver. Could probably grind the attachment and back down...some might be a little above the surrounding handle material? At $40, don't know if that's something ya'll would be interested in ::shrug::
Just throwing a thought out there.

Give Great Eastern a call. They may have one laying around. It's worth a phone call to find out.

There's some Chinese knives on eBay with the brand name of "Nashville" that have guitar shields. I guess it depends on how bad your customer wants that guitar shield.

Thanks guys common good suggestions. I sent my customer to email last night wanting to know what type of guitar. See great minds do work alike. I am disappointed to see that one of you didn't mentioned a Flying V guitar. That is Iconic and I think it would make a cool shield as long it goes with his type of music.

I may have to put my Fordham to use and make one. ::hmm::

W. R. Case & Sons also had a line - or maybe two - of knives with a guitar shield. One commemorated Elvis Presley, and I believe one also commemorated Johnny Cash. As those knives are often available on eBay, you might be able to find a donor knife with a guitar shield.
