Not much to report. It is good material. I replaced a white pick guard on a guitar with a handcut black one. Looks great!
Good stuff for pick guards, etc. Works well and does the job, but seems like the price is always going up and now it seems as if the blank is smaller than ever.. and made in Korea!?!
Fast delivery, good product and easy to work with, sounds like another win from Stew Mac to me. Thanks again! and as a plus there is enough product to make 2 pickguards with, I will be making a second one once I get my skill set up thanks again!
This is exactly as stated in the description. I also found that it can be easily used for thermal molding and heat bending if done carefully making it even more versatile than simply "pickguard" material lending itself to more non-typical roles. All in all it is a good product at a reasonable price.
This sheet is huge, about twice the size I expected which is good. looks great too.
This is tough, thick, rigid stuff. Much more substantial than the stock materials on most of my guitars.
Cuts well with a scroll saw. Sands smooth with a Dremel. I used a tip on here for beveling the edges with a file... worked great.
The 5 ply black and white pickguard material makes very professional fretboards for steel guitars. I used the fret spacing dimentions, from Stew-Mac. (free) and using a 1/16 dia. endmill, to just cut thru the outer black layer, down to the white, and 1/4 and 5/16 end mills to make the fret markers, and then a dab of red enamel in every other marker dot.
I've bought LOTS of different pickguard materials elsewhere. I've found no other laminate to be any better no matter the cost, and plenty others to be less than satisfying. Besides the quality of the material, the size of the sheet is easy 1.5 x's bigger than anything else I've bought. I feel more at ease to try new designs and not worry about costs if it doesn't work out.
To me, it was big enough to make pickguard on my two latest guitars.
All the parts for this guitar I bought here at Stewmac.
I am also very pleased with your superfast delivery. It only takes a couple of days to have it delivered at my door here in norway.
