We have finally managed to produce the most accurate Explorer guards ever made. These were produced by Gibson in the late 1950’s and only about 40- something of them were ever made, making them one of the most rare pickguards ever made by Gibson.
We had them made from Cellulose Nitrate by the same company that made them in the 50’s. Colour matched the white colour exactly to an original guard.
4 ply w/b/w/b and include the “roll marks” (actually called shearing marks) as per the originals.
They are the correct thickness and made from accurate tracings of a known original guard from a well known original explorer.
Some 7 years in the making but finally done!
At the moment we only offer the Explorer guards, but V guards will follow.
This is a Pre Order Limited Run item, will ship end of October 2021
Disclaimer: These are made from tracings of an original Explorer guard from 1958. Many copies of explorers have been made over the years, but few are made exactly like the originals were. Please understand that If this guard does not fit your guitar that means your guitar isn’t an accurate replica.
