    Default New pickguard day


    Im a sucker for the tortoise shell pickguard. Johnny Marr Jag with mastery bridge and Fender brown Tort pick-guard.
    American Deluxe Tele with tortoise shell binding and pick-guard.

    Those look great, a bit darker than typical and I like that.

    the tele is super dark so i was keen to get a pickguard without too much articulation for the jag. So happy.

    Where did you get those? I have a white Strat that I tried a tortoise on and it was way too red for what I was looking for.

    Classy looking guitars!

    I got it from arkansas music works through their ebay store. Angelas carries them too. There are loads of 3rd party manufacturers but i wanted the authentic Fender part. About $80. Also, not being facetious, you may have tried a red tortoise Shell pickguard instead of a brown one. They make both and the red is most definitely less subtle.

    Thanks! I didn't even know they were available in brown, so yeah I probably got red.
