Need correct pick guard bracket for a 1967 Casino


Recommended Posts

Hi-new here but need help. I just bought a pretty much mint, under the bed since almost new 1967 Epiphone Casino ES230TDC-serial number 370697. Its one of my bucket list guitars-had one from 1968 till 1974 and foolishly sold it. Anyway, the only flaws are that someone removed and lost the pick guard, screws and bracket. I also have the Epiphone tremolo and the arm was taken off. I have the arm but need the correct nylon washer, screw and retining nut. For the pick guard, I am having a new correct guard made, but wonder why the correct bracket seems to not be available. I can buy a Les Paul style -1 bend bracket, but the orig. has 2 bends. I called everywhere-Gruhn, Elderly, etc, and after saying "No Problem" it seems no one has the right one. Allparts has a similar bracket, but it has 2 holes where it attaches to the rim of the guitar with screws. It looks like The "IBJL" and the "Elites" have the correct bracket, but no one can seem to get parts for them. Any ideas? - I want to get this lady back in shape and complete.Thanks.
