Vintage specification Bakelite pickguards for Esquires and Telecasters, as found on 50s Blackguards. These have the vintage shape and 5 mounting holes. The Esquire and Telecaster versions are identical save for the neck pickup hole.
For completing the vintage effect these can be sprayed with our Light Brown and Clear Satin nitrocellulose lacquers to give that aged appearance. Bakelite has a more matt look and feel than typical black PVC or acrylic pickguards, and a harder, more brittle feel to it.
The way it should be

Unlike other aftermarkets this drops right on like it was the original. Love it.
