Pretty good, would be perfect if there were no air bubbles

I have put two of these on Teton acoustics. They look great and offer good protection. My only issue is I had little air pockets on both. You would have to look closely to see them. I'm replacing them with black.

Very low profile. Virtually invisible after installation. Also shown installed in this picture are: 0246-N (NKL Dunlop Straplok Set), and 4018-B (Black Felt Washer)

Clear Guard Installation

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I added a clear pickguard to my
AA40-OEC so I thought I'd add a photo
to illustrate the installation technique. 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 with the back of your fingernail 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.

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

By

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.
