Blue-green PAUA Abalone strat pickguard (real and genuine New Zealand PAUA Abalone, NO plastic imitation, the material most jewelers use
Price €140,00 for standard strat with cutouts.
Price €170,00 (if ordered together)for complete set of pickguard, 3 pickup covers and three knobs all covered in matching dark blue abalone.
The real thing, New Zealand Paua, all natural rainbow colors and exotic shapes. The classic abalone used for jewelry and fine inlays. Looks very good on white, cream, black, blue, tobacco burst and red
strats. Adds fine contrast but with an artistic effect and not that “cheap” plastic look that you get on standard white or black pickguards.
Every pickguard is unique and will vary from this picture somewhat but the overall color is the same. Since this material is extremely rare, it may take a few weeks for me to get a hold of some. The wait is really worth your while though and you will not be disappointed!

For 3 single coil pickup covers in matching dark blue ripple abalone please add €40,00. Pickup holes are standard size and spacing. I cut them out somewhat larger so that all magnets fit easily.

You save if you order the complete package. It saves time for me to do a complete package.
I can wire your completed pickguard with the Fingertips Switching (normally only available on my completed guitars) 12 Sounds altogether – 7 new exciting sounds not possible with the five way switch. SPECIAL OFFER- add only €100,00! You must send me your pickups or pickguard
All pickguards are made by me personally and all by hand! Laminated in three to four very thin layers and then lacquered. Don´t expect perfectly machined pickguards because I am not a machine and I drill, grind and cut by hand! Because of this very brittle and fragile material, it is not possible to mass produce these pickguards. You are getting a fine hand crafted part that you will grow to love with time and it will last the life of your guitar.
