MV Custom SJ-200 Hand Engraved Pickguard is made with the highest quality pickguard material. Designed to match the original vintage layout of the tortoise-style SJ200 pickguards of the 30′s and 40′s & 50′s, but with many more beautiful design additions. 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.
Vintage Gold engraved layout design, with white & gold Mother of Pearl dots.
Note: This is a solid non-laminated celluloid material; translucency will vary with the darkness of the instrument body. Because this tortoise is handmade, individual thicknesses may vary slightly 2mm (+-0.1mm).
