Question:
Is it better for me to buy a guitar without a pick guard?  Does the pick guard absorb sound?

Thanks,
Brent

Answer:
If the guitar has a normal Martin, Guild, Taylor, etc. sized pick guard, it will have no noticeable effect on the sound.  The pick guard would have to be very large covering both sides of the sound hole and maybe more before noticeable dampening of sound would occur.
