Acoustic pickgaurds

I am thinking of changing my pickguard on my acoustic, because its one of those boring black ones, but since my guitar is kinda vintage, I am worried this will significantly decrease the value. Also on a side note would putting an acoustic pickup in it change the value significantly?

I guess value would decrease, but it depends what you replace it with. I mean if its something out of place then it'd probably make it a bit worse.

Do you have any pics of the pickguards you had in mind?

my guitars epiphone, but it a very nicely put together guitar. Its from the early 80s too and I played a brand new gibson acoustic at a store, and I have to say the Epi is better, maybe just because of the age, which has my interested in value, although probably putting this and a pickup on would reduce value..

I am not so sure putting a 'hummingbird' pickguard on a non-hummingbird model is the best idea but then again, there isn't a huge collectors value on an early 80's Epiphone. If it plays great and you love it then that is all that matters.

Also, consider if you ever WILL sell it. You may be far too in love with it.
