Gibson A or F mandolin pickguard kit tortoise shell with bracket c1917-1921


Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard kit for c1917-1921 Gibson mandolins like A, A-1, A-2, F-2 and F-4 mandolins. Pickguard replicates the design Gibson used from c1917-1921 but will also fit pre-1917 Gibson A mandolins as well. Gibson changed the design of their mandolin pickguards around 1917 by eliminating the bottom hook that went around the bridge used on the c1910-1916 pickguards. It is made from solid acrylic tortoise shell material that will not warp or rot like the original celluloid pickguards. High gloss finish. Complete kit comes with pickguard, pre-attached fingerboard & bridge mounting pins, tortoise support bracket and chrome clamp with cork padding and also comes with complete installation instructions. All you will need is a small hammer, nail set or countersink, 2 small spring clamps, and super glue. Dimensions: 7" from top to bottom on the inside edge. 3 1/4" x 7 3/8" overall.

Highest quality and most accurate reproduction pickguard available anywhere.

Pickguard shown on a c1919 A mandolin is just for reference only.
