Used an Xacto Compass to cut the Sound Hold, Comressed Air to blow the dust away. Got Professional looking Results!

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.

Best Option for Clear Pickguard

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have tried most of the pickguards and pickguard blanks out there. None were very good.
I hadn't tried these blank sheets because they were too thin in my opinion to resist downward strikes with a pick without denting. So I got the bright idea to laminate two thicknesses together and see how that worked. A little risk on my part but it turned out quite well. I laminated two rectangles together and there were no bubbles. Traced the outline of my custom pickguard design to the backing paper and cut it. I did thorough cleaning of the entire surface of the guitar and went in the bathroom where I have a counter large enough to set a guitar work mat. The results were as good as one could hope for...and better than precut pickguards by a long shot.
This material is barely visible and the double thickness is better for protection. Be sure to use the "wet method" of applying clear sheet.

This material worked really well to produce a pickguard for my custom guitar. Used the wet water method and it came out perfectly.

I had my Telecaster pickguard autographed by Bill Kirchen recently. I took the pickguard off the Tele & brought it when I saw him play. The signature was done on a white 3 layer pickguard with a Sharpie. After researching all methods of preservation, using a sheet of this clear material was the best. I used a dry method of application and it went on easily. I trimmed with an X-acto after it was on and smoothed out any small air pockets. ItÆs perfect. The sheet of material is rigid and does a great job going on without misbehaving like it was Saran wrap. The end result is smooth and undetectable.

I have had this clear pick guard material on my hand-made Michael Dunn guitar for about 8 years, and recently bought some to take to a luthier in Turkey for use on ouds/lavtas. It really is transparent, both visually and acoustically. It is almost invisible and does not block or mute the sound from the interment. (I also discovered that Stewmac ships to Turkey...but my order was a gift, and the luthier can buy further supplies by mail order). R J Stewart

This product was recommended by my luthier and I have used it on all my ukuleles that take a beating. Looks fab! It was easy to apply as well.
