Pickguards

We offer a wide range of pickguards in usual and less usual styles. We don't try to compete with suppliers of cheap Far Eastern pickguards, but can offer a variety of good-quality US-sourced designs. Sheet stock is available too, and we make non-standard designs to order.

We some beautiful vintage-style celluloid guards, which are ideal for high-end or older guitars, We also have a variety of Larrivee guards, which fit the majority of their models. A cheaper range of correctly sized vinyl guards is also kept in stock. These aren't in the same league as the handmade types, but are a good option on a cheaper guitar.

We particularly like the retro Tortoloid styles developed by luthier Mario Proulx, which use poured resins and dyes to create individual replicas of vintage styles.

Check out the templates if you're not sure about ordering. Using a template is a much better bet than trying to work from soundhole radius, due the compound curves involved.
