We took the shape from an original 1953 guard and incorporated screw-hole placement and pickup spacing to fit today's USA and Historic Les Pauls!
Made with the correct .09 sheet material in a beautiful shade of cream (that's not pink, as some Gibson plastic tends to be), with no bevel and authentic chatter marks along the edge of the guard, just like a vintage piece from the 50s.
Available in our NOS, LIX Patina, or Extreme LIX finishes.*
NOS - No intentional aging. A few light marks may be present that reflect the handcrafted nature of our parts.
LIX Patina - LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. These parts are lightly to look and feel like well-loved parts from that era.
Extreme LIX - Heavily worn yet still perfectly functional. Each is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece created by our artists.
We make them to fit Gibson USA or Historic Les Pauls. Choose your model and finish preference from the list at the top of this description. If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always happy to assist you.
The last photo is an image of 3 vintage "Mutts" with their original pickguards for your comparison. Many thanks to Charles Daughtry for always making his beautiful photography available to us.
Made in USA.
