Thin pickguard blank sheets for cutting your own acoustic pickguards. These sheets come ready fitted with adhesive on the back so your finished pickguard can be quickly and easily fitted to the instrument. Wide range of tortoiseshell and other patterns available.
Black is solid black all the way through the material.
Tortoiseshell (Dark Brown Printed) and Tortoiseshell (Black Printed) are printed designs with an otherwise clear sheet.
Great way to finish a guitar

Having trawled a lot of websites, I initially went for the spotted option, but when it arrived I didn't like it - the black blotches tended to the large side and they looked unattractive. R&K were good enough to swap it for the brown tortoiseshell, which is much more subtle and swirly, and it looks fantastic on my first home-made acoustic. Compares favourably with the pickguard on my Martin, IMHO. Yes, it is expensive, but then again so are the tortoiseshell sheets from other providers. The sheet is large enough for two pickguards.
Convincing-looking faux tortoiseshell

This is a great way to make a custom-shaped pickguard-or-two, though I feel it's a bit pricey for what is essentially just a small sheet of screen-printed self adhesive plastic.
