Gibson L-5C cutaway archtop guitar pickguard tortoise shell 5-ply binding
Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard for a Gibson L-5C cutaway arch-top guitars. This is the smaller pickguard Gibson started using in the 1950s and measures 7 1/2" along the straight side. Overall dimensions: 7 3/4" x 3 7/8". It will also fit other cutaway arch-top top guitars, but if you are replacing an existing pickguard, be sure to measure yours because Gibson also used a larger 8" pickguard on some of their high-end archtops like the L-7C, L-4C & Super 400C. I also have the larger size pickguards, so see my other auctions. It is made from solid tortoise shell material with 5-ply white/black/white/black/white binding around the edges. High gloss finish. Note: Holes for mounting not drilled in pickguard since exact hole location will vary from guitar to guitar and model to model.
Pickguard shown on a vintage L-5C is just for reference only.
