Great for Acoustics

By

Verified Buyer


These are great for acoustic guitars and easy to install. I use heavier gage for my Flamenco guitars but not necessary for pick strikes on an acoustic. Stew Mac shipping and service is excellent as always.

Pickguard comments

By

Verified Buyer


I recently bought a pickguard for my Martin HD 28 and was surprised that the radius was not even close to the radius of the soundhole. I had to cut, sand and polish it to match. Normally, I am totally satisfied with StewMac products but since Martins have pretty much the identical hole in probably almost all of their guitars, I thought the pickguard should have been an identical match or at least closer to the one I removed. I am a faithful buyer of StewMac products and this will not hamper my purchasing but the company should know about this and perhaps review the supplier/mfg.

Not what I was expecting but useful and high quality

By

Verified Buyer


The on line illustration looked more like the "tiger stripe" style of tortoise shell but the item received looks lighter and more "spotted." No problem, it was of high quality and thicker than the OEM guards on most of my acoustics. I plan to buy more.

Black and Tortoise pick guards

By

Verified Buyer


Black pick guards are great. I would use this on a Martin guitar. The tortoise pick guard has the color all on the surface - no depth. I would not use one of these on any guitar I cared about.

Good pickguard for the price (tortoise)

By

Verified Buyer


I looked around a lot since this was for an inexpensive guitar. I didn't want to spend $25 or more for the premium ones, but I didn't like the printed pepperoni look either. This one fit the bill with pretty nice depth and transparency for the price.
I would be willing to pay a couple bucks more if they came with the edges beveled and polished. It isn't hard--I did it-- but should be able to factory do it better I'd think.

black pickguard

By

Verified Buyer


Top-shelf product that fit exact and saved time and work. The D35 didn't have a pickguard on it but an ate-up place where one used to be. After some reinforcement of the nearly 50 year old spruce, I laid down a thin layer of super glue. After curing, I stuck tape on the lower side of the guard, set it in place, then lifted it up to peel the backing and drop 'er in place. It was an exact fit and went right over the existing place, thanks to the tape hinge.

Nightmare.

By

Verified Buyer


These are a nightmare to put on because you can see the fingerprints from both sides. The dust and dirt show and it is almost impossible to trim them without making a mess since everything shows from trying to place it on the guitar. Why not sell them without the adhesive and let the installer apply that when he has it ready after trimming. Or do like Taylor guitars does and let static adhere them so you can remove and reuse.
