Gibson L-5CES electric guitar pickguard dark tortoise shell with 5-ply binding
Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard for c1958 or after Gibson L-5CES, L-5CESN and other archtop electric guitars. Pickguard is made from solid semi-translucent dark tortoise shell material and has 5-ply white/black/W/B/W binding around the edges except for pickup cut-outs. High gloss finish. Pickguard is design to fit the L-5CES with 2 - 1 1/2” wide PAF humbucking pickups but will also fit other Gibson archtop electrics because the PU cut-outs are slightly deeper & wider which provides some adjustment horizontally and vertically. Pickguard dimensions: 7 1/2” along the straight side and 7 3/4” x 4” overall. Will accommodate guitars with PU spacing of 3 1/8” to 3 3/16” Note: Holes for mounting are not drilled in pickguard since exact location will vary from guitar to guitar and model to model. You will not find a custom pickguard like this anywhere but price reflects the extreme difficulty in making this design clean and precise.
Pickguard shown on a vintage L-5CES is just for reference only.
