Update and shoutout to Taylor Mullins from Holter Pickguards! The cheap sticker I had tried to pass off as a legit pickguard replacement wasn’t cutting it. Taylor had reached out to me back when I started this thread offering help so I finally took him up on it. It was a pleasure to work with him and he took my custom design (which was needed to cover the old scar) and made a beveled and polished dark tortoise work of art! I cannot recommend Holter highly enough.

Taylor custom cut a new tortoise pick guard for my 1978 Gurian. It was perfect. Highly recommended!!

That looks great!! Congrats and glad that it worked out in the end.

Best,

What a happy ending to a nearly tragic story! Taylor Mullins has made guards for nearly all of my guitars. I still have two with no guard and another that was used with a decent guard (so no urgency to replace). Highly recommend Holter Pickguards!

He has made three for me. Awesome. I agree that it is much better than what it replaced.

Cheers.

I'm waiting for a new pick guard from Taylor Mullins to replace the curled-up p/g from the Yairi DY-57 that I just bought.

A little bit of grain came up with the old p/g, but it should be unnoticeable once the new one is on. The previous owner used an unknown type of glue trying to get the old one to stay down, and it's been a tedious chore getting that old glue off. But I'm almost there.

You just can't do better than a Holter Pick Guard!

Thanks. I am an older beginner and having a blast....although I didn't expect the obsession thing...…. I have been through it with cars before..."what's the next mod?" etc...

Hence me spending so much time now reading this board and seeing the pickguard removal pictures...… and having a go at it...…..
