Gibson L-5CES TruVintage pickguard celluloid tortoise w/ 5-ply aged binding
Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard for c1961 or after Gibson L-5CES, L-5CESN and the Super 400CES as well other archtop electric guitars. The TruVintage pickguard design captures the look of an original Gibson pickguard that has aged but is a brand-new product. It is made from 100% real celluloid tortoise shell with a rigid semi-translucent acrylic backing for added strength and stability. It has a 5-ply aged ivoroid/black/ivoroid/black/ivoroid binding around the edges except for pickup cut-outs. Hand-buffed glossy finish. It will fit the L-5CES or Super 400CES with two PAF pickups spaced 4 2/4” 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. It has the look of a typical Gibson pickguard from the Golden Age and there are no other pickguards like this anywhere.
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 as each one is unique.
Note: Holes for mounting are not drilled in pickguard since exact location will vary from guitar to guitar and model to model.
