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. It will fit the L-5CES or Super 400CES with two PAF pickups spaced 4 3/4” apart measuring the distance between the pickup height adjustment screws. Pickguard dimensions: 7 1/2” along the straight side and 7 3/4” x 4” overall. Note: Holes for mounting are not drilled in pickguard since exact location will vary from guitar to guitar and model to model.
All pictures shown are representative of the pickguard you will receive. There will be variations in the tortoise shell pattern from one pickguard to another. Pickguard shown on a vintage L-5CES is just for reference only.
