Bakelite Pickguard for Tele & Esquire

The real deal. Retro appeal! Fender used Bakelite® on the Tele® and Esquire® guitars from 1950 to '54.

Go all out with your retrofit—use genuine Bakelite on your old (or new) Tele!

0.084" (2.13mm) thick with 5 mounting holes. Single ply, squared edge, and unshielded—just like the originals. Pickguard screws sold separately.

Collector trivia: Bakelite was developed in 1905 by Leo Baekeland, who had set out to find an alternative to shellac. In 1993 it was designated a National Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society in recognition of its significance as the world's first synthetic plastic.

Works really well with my barncaster. Classic look and feel. Solid.

Just swapped the nasty plastic original. 3/5 screws aligned really well; 1 not some bad; and 1 not at all -- just drove the original wood screw straight into the soft pine with a screwdriver. Bakelite lies flat and has a nice sturdy feel; guitar has slightly more resonance, too!

Nice Piece of Kit!

I bought this to put on my new Squire CV 50's tele to make it into a blackguard Esquier... (spelling intentional!) Looks great and holes lined up great on mine! It's a bit shiny for me so I'll be working it a little bit to dull it up, otherwise it's great!
