MV Custom GOLD Hummingbird Hand Engraved Pickguard is made with the highest quality pickguard material. Designed to match exactly the original vintage layout of the tortoise-style Hummingbird pickguards of the 60′s. Nowdays all the mass production pickguards are printed on plastic and the design is fading with the use. This engraved Pickguard ensure twenty-five years of use without worries of loosing the atractive appereance of this unique vintage design.
The material pattern is swirled throughout the gloss-surface material, not printed on a layer like many other pickguards, producing a unique impressive dark traditional color depth. Made of acrylic, with better stiffness and resistance to warping than celluloid when suspended over a guitar.
Gold and white engraved layout design, tortoise style material.
Note: This is a solid non-laminated material; translucency will vary with the darkness of the instrument body. Because this tortoise is handmade, individual thicknesses may vary slightly 2.2mm (+-0.1mm).
