Easy To Install Pick Guard

(Customer's Reviews)

This is an excellent, , easy to install pick guard. There's no messy glue job envolved. I just decided where to position it, marked the location with a few little pieces of tape, peeled off the protective backing and carefully laid the pick guard down. The only thing to be careful of is not tapping any bubbles between the pick guard and the top of the guitar. Nice and easy. Great product.


The Best Clear Pickguard

(Customer's Reviews)

Now and then a client insists on a clear guard. This one is the best I've found. Not too thick, not too thin, cut accurately and smoothly. The shape and radius are ideal for a 000 to D size guitar with a 3 7/8" to 4" sound hole. Beware of similar products sold online as most are cut sloppily.

BTW, use water to install these clear guards without air pockets.


Needs to be trimmed to size

(Customer's Reviews)

Thought that this would be just the right size for my Martin HD28, but it is not so requires trimming to exact size of old pickguard. Not that easy to do to get perfect fit
