Replacement pickguard for Epi Es-355
Posted 17 April 2012 - 01:25 AM
I'm new to the forum here so apologies if something similar has been posted previously.
Having just recently purchased an Epi Es-355, I'm looking to get a replacement pickguard for it and have been amazed by
a: The difficulty in actually finding an genuine one to purchase,
b: The price of some of the aftermarket ones on sale.
If anyone knows of a reputable site/seller that deals in them, or perhaps even someone who has one and just doesn't want it, I'd really appreciate it.
Ps: I'm looking for a bound tortoise one, similar to the attached photo.
Cheer to you all

Ditto. I got my Custom Truss Rod Cover from them in half the time they advertise. I'll gladly go back to them for any future needs.

If you want to swop your tortoiseshell Epi ES355 pickgaurd for my black Epi ES345 pickguard let me know. The two should be a direct swop.
Alternatively, if you want to sell me the tortoiseshell again send me a PM.

I'd be interested to know how you get on with Terrapin.

It cost around $35.
The tortoise was a little too light for my liking and the edge was beveled instead of bound.
Pickguardian seems to be the way to go for a bound guard.
I will be contacting them when I can get the time.
As soon as I get it and have it mounted I will post photos.
