Gibson "Lucille" replacement Pickguard!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

My "Lucille" pickguard has come apart! That is, the multi-ply binding on the outside edge,

as come completely off! This occurred, while stored in it's original case. Last time I had

it out, it was "fine!" When I went to get it out, to play it, a few days ago...I opened the

case to find the pickguard's binding, down on top of the body's lower bout. [confused]

 

So, I need a replacement, as I live (in the "sticks), and hours from the nearest Gibson dealer

or repair facility.

 

I've notified Gibson's CS, and the Repair/Restoration folks, but...as of yet, no response.

 

HELP!!! [tongue] :unsure:

If the 5 ply binding strips are still in good shape, you could re-glue them. I don't know if you can still buy Ambroid cement in the US. I've used Duco cement in my younger days building RC planes, etc.

 

 

I'd better check my Lucille... been years since I've opened the case...

Here is one place I found that looks like the original with the thick 5 ply bindings around the edges.

 

Didn't see any black pickguard; but it appears you can custom order.

 

Good luck and please post your source.

Thanks, ALL, for your suggestions. [biggrin] I have several options, at this point.

And, some good folks, I know, looking into a possible replacement, from Gibson.

So, we'll see what happens?

 

Appreciate the continuing feedback! [thumbup]

 

Cheers,

 

CB
