Best value around for looks, price and ease of installation.

One of the best pick guards on the market.

Printed? So what? It looks GREAT.

I did the tortoise. Fantastic bang for the buck. If you're just dressing up a single guitar, why would you care if they're printed? Now, if you're gonna do 3 or 4, & display them side by side, somebody might notice, but I frankly doubt it. Good part.

Perfect fit.

I needed a replacement of a pickguard for the early 70s Martin acoustic and I got one from the internet - it was too small (surprise, surprise). I got one from StewMac - perfect fit (no surprise here). Thank you guys - you know your stuff.

Really Impressed

I was looking for something different to put on my 00-15 and was really impressed with the tortoise pickguard. Great price and a big improvement over the original.

nice tortoise pickguard

Like two other reviewers, I replaced the black pickguard on my Martin DC-1E. I had to sand the top curve of it to fit around the sound hole properly and the pickguard is slightly smaller than the Martin one. But since there satin finish on the guitar is so light, you can't really tell. It is thin so you can actually see your guitar slightly through it..which is kinda cool. Overall I am glad I bought it.

Low quality.

StewMac responds

Big Rand,
Yes, the tortoise pattern is indeed printed onto each one of these pickguards, and we're sorry you were unhappy with the pickguard you received. You might want to consider upgrading to our Tortoloid Dreadnought Pickguard. They are hand-made from poured resins, which makes each pickguard unique as well as very similar to real tortoise shell. We're happy to take that tortoise pickguard back; just contact us. If any items fails to meet your expectations, you may return it, unaltered, for a refund or exchange.

Clear Guard installation

The clear guard is thin, smooth, and well made, but needs good technique for bubble free installation. Clean the guitar surface of dust and dirt. Starting at the wide end of the guard, peel back about 1/2 inch of the bottom protective film and fold it back on itself. Keeping the sticky area off of the guitar, align the semicircle cutout with the sound hole. When you're satisfied with the alignment lightly press the sticky edge down into position. If you're not satisfied with the alignment you can gently peel it up and reposition it. Rub across the face of the guard to remove the air bubbles while slowly peeling the protective film off from the bottom. If air bubbles get trapped you can gently peel it up and re-rub it into place. Remove the top protective film. The result should be nearly bubble free and all but invisible.

Tortoise Pickguard

I purchased this pickguard for a badly abused Alverez AD-70AC I rescued and restored (neck broken near head stock, sound board cracked around bridge, etc. The guard fit had to be trimmed just a tad to match the sound hole radius which was easy and it definetly gave this guitar some character. (the stock guard was standard black) I recommend this product to anyone who wants a high quality pickguard at a reasonable price.

Nice Pickguards!

These pickguards are a great value and look incredible for the cost. I'm using tortoise on a number of different acoustics and all look gorgeous. Thanks!
