Exactly what I needed

Works great, easy to apply

By

Verified Buyer


I actually used this on an electric guitar (master grade quilted maple top) because I didn't want to cover any of the wood but I needed to protect it. While there is a very slight orange peel effect (more a slight rippling than the usual pitted look) it isn't noticeable unless you really look hard for it. In fact, it's hard to tell that there is anything there at all. The instructions are pretty good but if you search on the web for "Frank Ford" and "clear pickguard" you can find a very informative video on how to apply it.

Excellent classical guitar protection

By

Verified Buyer


First of all, is strong and big enough for every guitar size. After this, the material is very clear. Highly recomended for classical or flamenco and other acoustic guitars.

Has an "Orange-Peel" Look When Cured

By

Verified Buyer


We tested 8 pickguards, from wet-application to dry application, from mixing windex-with water, to using just water, to warm water mixed with windex. All of these pickguards when fully cured after 48 hours, showed an Orange-Peel look. Finish was a high gloss Nitro Cellulose Laquer. We believe the material needs to be thicker to eliminate this issue.

Excellent Pickguard material

Verified Buyer


I've used this material on many guitars and ukuleles with perfect results.
The trick to installing it bubble/gap free is laying it down with water.
I did a youtube video on the method.

Clear pick guard

By

Verified Buyer


The material was simple to apply, however it is too thin and may have to be replaced if the guitar is played aggressively. Would need to order thicker, more rigid material.

First build guitar

By

Verified Buyer


I used this pick guard on my first build acoustic guitar through the Brisbane Guitar Making School in Qld. I applied a shellac finish on the guitar and it blends in very nicely. I prefer it to other pick guards as it doesn't interfere with the overall look of the guitar (which I love!!). I will use this pick guard on all my future builds. Thank you for offering an incredible product. Love it!! Cheers, Pete

Great Scratch Protection

By

Verified Buyer


If you own a Guitar that has no Pick Guard , this is the remedy to protect your Baby without changing it's looks . This is the first Clear Pick Guard material that I got RIGHT the first time ! Easy to apply , makes your Guitar Scratch Proof and it won't break the Bank . Easy Instructions and I didn't have one flaw , like a bubble , to iron out . My Taylor T-5 looks Great and is protested from when I get crazy with the Plectrum , put this Product on your Guitar , you won't regret it !

Mylar Pickguard Material

By

Verified Buyer


Every year I go to Mexico for a musical vacation. Last year I visited the town of Paracho in Michoacán. Paracho is a town of 40,000 devoted almost entirely to lutherie, making guitars. Entering town, there is a 50 ft statue of a guitar. So I bought one. I'm keeping it at a friend's house down there. The only problem with the guitar (it plays and sounds great!) its that is has no pick guard. So looked on line for adhesive mylar to make one and StewMac came up. I got just the right material and will be taking to Mexico this year to put it on my "guitarra de Paracho". Thanks StewMac.
