Mylar Pickguard Material

By

Verified Buyer


Every year I go to Mexico for a musical vacation. Last year I visited the town of Paracho in Michoacán. Paracho is a town of 40,000 devoted almost entirely to lutherie, making guitars. Entering town, there is a 50 ft statue of a guitar. So I bought one. I'm keeping it at a friend's house down there. The only problem with the guitar (it plays and sounds great!) its that is has no pick guard. So looked on line for adhesive mylar to make one and StewMac came up. I got just the right material and will be taking to Mexico this year to put it on my "guitarra de Paracho". Thanks StewMac.

Too thin

By

We build flamenco guitars and needed a larger tap plate (golpeador) for double top guitars. This sheeting is too thin for this purpose.

Fairly easy to apply even dry. Make a pattern cut clean and apply. The film does not effect the loudness, but it is noticeable. Use the least area to protect, The film attenuates the higher range more than lower tones. the break seems to be around middle C on the Ukulele. reentrant tuning is least noticeable.

Ripply finish when installed

By

Verified Buyer


Stew-Mac, please get this in a .010" thickness. I know it's available because I get it from another supplier. I'd rather just order it from you guys. The thicker stock lays down smoothly with a glossy finish that causes it to seemingly disappear on a gloss top. This thinner material does not. It is discouraging to spend hours on buffing out a guitar only to add a clear guard that appears somewhat orange peel-like or ripply.

Response from StewMac


Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to pass this suggestion along to our Product Development Team for review.

Easy as pie

By

Verified Buyer


This material is super easy to cut with scissors or a good blade. It goes on easy, and stays. I buy it all the time and use it up quickly. I've had similar material from other vendors, but they usually don't pack it correctly and when you get it there is a crease or two, rendering it useless. The stewmac ones always come in pristine condition.

Not happy

By

Verified Buyer


I wanted this for a flamenco guitar. This material is too thin. It is not what you find on true flamenco guitar. I ended up having to purchase the correct material from another vendor. Now I'm stuck with this and will never use it. For what I paid it is not worth the shipping to send it back.
