Go all out with your retrofit—use genuine Bakelite on your old (or new) Tele!

0.084" (2.13mm) thick with 5 mounting holes. Single ply, squared edge, and unshielded—just like the originals. Pickguard screws sold separately.

Collector trivia: Bakelite was developed in 1905 by Leo Baekeland, who had set out to find an alternative to shellac. In 1993 it was designated a National Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society in recognition of its significance as the world's first synthetic plastic.

Nice Piece of Kit!

I bought this to put on my new Squire CV 50's tele to make it into a blackguard Esquier... (spelling intentional!) Looks great and holes lined up great on mine! It's a bit shiny for me so I'll be working it a little bit to dull it up, otherwise it's great!

Perfect for vintage Squire look.

Perfectly cut, very solid. You only need five holes for this one, it is thicker and lays dead flat. Much better than the usual cheap plastic pick guards.

Bakelite Tele pickguard

I bought a bakelite pick guard to replace the plastic one on my Fender AS Telecaster to solve static buildup and noise issues, which it does quite well. My only complaint is the the top 2 screw holes did not align correctly, so I had to try to get them aligned by widening the holes slightly.

bakelite pickguard

I bought three, each fit the tele just a little bit differently. I had to fine tune around the control plate.

Very nice!

I learned that there are different 'types' of bakelite apparently. This one is a bit heavier and feels more like micarta (just feels that way ... I'm not saying that it is). But it fit dead-perfect on my Fender Tele and it lays really nice and flat, letting me go to a 5-screw mounting rather than 8 which fits better with the vintage look I wanted. I'll get another of these for an Esquire soon. What more can I say as endorsement?

Nice looking, fairly good fit...

Looks very good and material is excellent, fit a little bit tight on a Vintage style Fender Custom Shop Tele, but servicable.
