WHITE Abalone Tele pickguard (real and genuine New Zealand WHITE Abalone, NO plastic imitation.The abalone with the most depth and wavelike ripples. By far the rarest, most costly and virtually unknown abalone.
Price €130,00 for standard tele with all holes and cutouts.PLEASE NOTE! These pickguards are rough cut only and have yet to be final cut, lacquered and polished.
Check out my Youtube videos – just type in “Pearlvibe, strat,abalone” or go top the DVD/VIDEO section to check out the white abalone on a surf strat!
The real thing, WHITE New Zealand Paua, all natural .This is the rarest abalone I know of. Looks very good on white, cream, butterscotch,black, blue, tobacco burst and red teles. Adds fine contrast but with an artistic held back effect and not that “cheap” plastic look that you get on standard white or black pickguards. Look closely; no BLING or glitter here at all, just deep rainbow beauty.
Every pickguard is unique and will vary from this picture somewhat but the overall color is the same:ranging from a white cream to a vivid champagne color. Very, very classy! 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!

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. It can take a beating.
Please note: Take a look at the white abalone strat pickguards. Picture quality is much better.
