As for the pickguard, I fashioned one from a cast-off off-brand Les Paul guitar pickguard, and put it on a nice Harmony I have. You probably could cut down any archtop guitar pickguard (and use the mounting hardware from it, too), but the easy thing is to go to Elderly Instruments ( and see what a proper replacement kit would cost.

A-Model pickguard from Elderly Instruments


F-Model pickguard from Elderly Instruments

Good luck.
