Gibson ES-250 TruVintage guitar pickguard celluloid tortoise w/ 5-ply aged binding
Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard for a pre-war Gibson ES-250 with the Charlie Christian pickup. Fox Guitars’ TruVintage pickguard design very precisely matches an original Gibson factory pickguard. It’s made from 100% real celluloid tortoise shell with a rigid semi-translucent acrylic backing which allows more light to show through the celluloid. It has a 5-ply aged ivoroid/black/ivoroid/black/ivoroid binding around the edges including the pickup cut-out. This pickguard also has a pre-attached black backing strip which makes it very strong and rigid to prevent any kind of warping or twisting. Hand-buffed glossy finish.
Note: Hole for mounting is not drilled because exact location will vary slightly from one guitar to another. No hardware included. All pictures shown are representative of the pickguard you will receive. Pictures of pickguard on the 1941 ES-250 courtesy of Gary's Classic Guitars.
