Gibson ES-355 TruVintage pickguard celluloid tortoise w/ 5-ply aged binding
Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard for late 1950s or after Gibson ES-355, ES-345 or equivalent semi-hollow body electric guitars. TruVintage pickguards (only available from Fox Guitars) very closely reproduce the design and look of an aged factory-original Gibson pickguard. It’s made from 100% real celluloid tortoise shell with a rigid semi-translucent acrylic backing which allows more light to show through the celluloid and has a 5-ply aged ivoroid/black/ivoroid/black/ivoroid binding around the edges except for pickup cut-outs. This pickguard also has a pre-attached black backing strip which makes it very strong and rigid to prevent any kind of warping or twisting. Hand-buffed glossy finish.
Pickguard dimensions: 7” x 3 3/4” overall. Neck pickup cut-out is 1 13/16” wide x 2/4” deep.
Note: Hole for mounting is not drilled because exact location will vary slightly from one guitar to another. No hardware included.
