Which bevel style would you like? * Please select 45° (Standard as used by Fender / Gibson) 90° Roundover Edge
We'll use brainpower to make sure a 90° edge is used on pickups, bridges, neck pockets and control plate edges.Please note- metal guards can only have 90° edges, and perspex/acrylic guards cannot have 45° edges
Antiquing / Relic / Road Worn service *
Realistic wear and tear can be applied to your new pickguard, suitable for older guitars or relic projects! (Please give us details of what kind of wear you're after in the comments box below so we can customise this to your requirements; if not we'll simply do this to our 'default' relic setting)
For guitars that need it, we add foil shielding on the reverse of our guards as standard. The foil shielding helps reduce electrical humming! As a rule of thumb, if your pickguard hasn't got electronics mounted to it, shielding is pointless. Shielding is also totally pointless on metal guards.
