Clear Guard: poor quality cutting

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The clear guards have an issue along the edge that causes the adhesive to not adher, leaving an unsightly appearance along the edge. I've tried several of these over an extended period and the issue is always in the same spot along the edge.
After recutting with a good pair of scissors the edge will lay down beautifully, but that defeats the whole point of buying a precut guard. The only advantage to these over the uncut clear sheets is the thickness. The uncut sheets are too thin.

Great for D-28

I replaced the original curled black pickguard on my 1970 D-28 and this installed easily with very minor shaving around the sound hole area of the pickguard for an excellent fit.

So glad I purchased these pick guards!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I was amazed at how easy these were to put on my three acoustic guitars. Each required a little trimming and shaping, as well as prep work on the instruments, but installation was simple and looks great! Thanks too for the video help at your website!

Easy To Install Pick Guard

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This is an excellent, , easy to install pick guard. There's no messy glue job envolved. I just decided where to position it, marked the location with a few little pieces of tape, peeled off the protective backing and carefully laid the pick guard down. The only thing to be careful of is not tapping any bubbles between the pick guard and the top of the guitar. Nice and easy. Great product.

The Best Clear Pickguard

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Now and then a client insists on a clear guard. This one is the best I've found. Not too thick, not too thin, cut accurately and smoothly. The shape and radius are ideal for a 000 to D size guitar with a 3 7/8" to 4" sound hole. Beware of similar products sold online as most are cut sloppily.

BTW, use water to install these clear guards without air pockets.

Needs to be trimmed to size

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Thought that this would be just the right size for my Martin HD28, but it is not so requires trimming to exact size of old pickguard. Not that easy to do to get perfect fit
