Need a Pickguard? HOLTER

Recommended Posts

Taylor Mullins at Holter Pickguards made me this for an LG2 American Eagle.

He makes custom guards for anything... your Gibby's (maybe not engraved like Birds), Martins, Taylors... you name it.

Whatcha think? Priced fairly IMO as well:

Wow, that is BEAUTIFUL 😮

It looks fantastic in the pics, I’ll definitely be in touch with him if I need guards! Would love to see it on the AE too.

Good luck - don't forget to post the result

And thanks Taylor Mullins...

None my brother. The guitar has a subdued mellow sound like old Dylan, or a Harmony even. The type of playing I do on it is never "driving the top". It is sweet and intimate, and I can't determine a sonic difference before and after. It just looks like I want it to.

I'll do a video later today (I am off work until tomorrow) comparing it to my J50.

Grunt - it is. With some minor contouring. We played with templates for J185s, B25s, and J50s. This is roughly a J50 shape where Taylor took care to get the outside contouring to match the LG2 curve at the waist.

Listened to the clips - sounds really good.

I have two new pickguards on order with Taylor. My question for you folks is this. When removing the old pickguard from a Gibson, is there any deformation (not tan lines) to the finish under the original guard? I am replacing the teardrop on my SCSJ with a batwing, and the teardrop actually slips under the b & e strings whereas the batwings stop near flush with the e string under the sound hole. Don't want to create any issues by doing this swap.

When my J-45 TV lost its guard there was no deformation of any kind - the sunburst was still perfect. There was an ever so slight line in the 9 year old guitar, but you really had to look. [img]https://i.imgur.com/tklLVbC.jpg[/img]

Thank you! That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I appreciate it.
