Gibson Byrdland TruVintage guitar pickguard celluloid tortoise 5-ply aged binding


Brand new, high-quality, hand-made replacement pickguard for c1961 or after Gibson Byrdland with twin humbucking pickups (c1958-1960* Byrdlands have a larger pickguard). TruVintage replacement pickguards very accurately reproduce the look of an aged factory original Gibson pickguard. They are made from 100% real celluloid tortoise shell with a rigid semi-translucent acrylic backing, which allows more light to show through the celluloid, and 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. Also come with black reinforcing strip on the back along the straight side, just like a factory pickguard. Hand-buffed glossy finish. Note: Holes for mounting are not drilled in pickguard because the exact hole location may vary from guitar to guitar and model to model.

*Note: We also offer a c1955-57 version for the Byrdland with 2 Alnico V P-90s for the same price, but not shown on website. Please send an email if you want this version.

All pictures shown are representative of the pickguard you will receive. There will only be variations in the tortoise shell pattern from one pickguard to another.

Highest quality and most accurate reproduction pickguard available anywhere.
