Red Tortoise Shell batwing vintage guitar pickguard for Gibson J-50 J-45
New replacement red tortoise shell vintage guitar pickguard for mid-1950s to early 1960s Gibson Jumbo flat-top guitars J-50 and J-45, and (SJ) Southerner Jumbo and SJN. This pickguard is commonly referred to as the "batwing." Made from thin .03" red tortoise shell material with a reflective backing so the pickguard will look the same regardless of a sunburst, natural or any other guitar finish. Also comes with 3M adhesive transfer tape backing, so all you have to do is peel and stick it on your guitar. Glossy finish with protective film. Designed to be a much lower cost alternative to our thick celluloid flat-top guitar pickguards.
Overall Dimensions: 9 3/4" x 4" with 4 3/4" diameter sound hole cut-out.
