TruVintage Gibson L-5 Arch top guitar pickguard celluloid tortoise 5-ply binding
Brand new, high-quality, hand-made replacement pickguard for c1935 or after Gibson 17” L-5 acoustic arch top guitars. TruVintage replacement pickguards very accurately reproduce the look of a 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 special 5-ply asymmetrical white/black/white/thicker black/thick white binding around the edges and also comes with pre-attached tortoise reinforcing strip on the back, along the straight side, like a Gibson 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. 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.
