Best solution

By Palaver from MetroWest MA - USA
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, April 30, 2014

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

Just What I Needed

I needed to put a clear pickguard on a steel stringed guitar that didn't have a pickguard. I followed the directions and am very pleased with the results.

I love this stuff

I do love this material. The perfect material for transparent pickguards especially good for Avalons and Lowdens. It does require a good eye for design and good dexterity to cut to shape and apply.

Could be better

By Bob T. from Sciota

I've had issues with this material and instructions, which I don't think are specific enough. The dry install does provide good enough quality. Wet install is difficult on some finishes due to beading, and have to use more wetting agent than suggested. There is also a purplish streaking on the material, and it does not lay flat.

I have suggested to Stew-Mac that they consider selling instead the same material used on cell phone screen covers, which I think would work better, if they can get sheets large enough.

Tried this out for the first time recently when I was fitting a golpeador for a customer. The material cut cleanly and easily and was of sufficient thickness to provide good protection. I fitted it using the water method. This made the job easy beyond belief and gave impeccable results.. not a blister in sight! Thoroughly recommend.

I like it

By Dr H from Earth

This stuff has been great, not only for putting pick-guards and golpeadora on guitars, but I've also used it to fit pick guards to a variety of more 'exotic' axes: cuatro; li'liu; bajo sexto; tiple -- not to mention ukes.

I do recommend that you get a 2-4" medium rubber roller (can be had from an art or printers' supply shop) and use it to firmly seat the material while rolling out any air bubbles. And use -sharp- scissors to get a clean edge.

Other than that, easy to work with, durable, and next to invisible when properly applied.

All I'd like now is to see it come in a couple of different thicknesses.
