Gibson Kalamazoo Cromwell Recording King A-style Mandolin Pickguard Kit Tortoise
New hand-made A-style mandolin pickguard kit for any standard 10 ¼” Gibson style A mandolins. Gibson used this design on many of its off-brands like Kalamazoo, Cromwell, Montgomery Ward/Recording King and many others. This is a simple and affordable way to dress up your “A” style mandolin. The complete kit includes heavy-duty .14” thick orange tortoise shell acrylic pickguard with high-gloss finish & polished edges, chrome pickguard support, screws, bolt & nut, plus a .14” thick riser block with screw for mounting the top of the pickguard next to the fingerboard. Pickguard is the same size and shape as any Gibson A-style mandolin made after 1924. Pickguard dimensions: 6 3/8” along the straight side and 6 ¾”x3 ¼” overall. Pickguard kit is reversible to it can be mounted on a right-handed or left-handed mandolin. The only tools required are 1/8” drill bit with counter-sink, screwdrivers, super glue and a small clamp.
