Gibson L-7 TruVintage guitar pickguard celluloid tortoise w/ aged binding
New hand-made replacement pickguard for a Gibson L-7 and some post-WWII L-50 arch-top guitars. This is made from solid faux tortoise shell material with a single thick cream binding around the edges. 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 single thick aged ivoroid binding around the edges. Hand-buffed glossy finish. This pickguard can be used on both the 16" and 17" wide Gibson arch-tops. Dimensions: 9 3/4" along the straight side. Overall: 10 1/4" long X 3 3/4" wide. This pickguard has the look of a vintage Gibson pickguard from the pre-WWII era. 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.
