Brand new hand-made replacement pickguard kit for c1917 - 1924 Gibson A and F style mandolins. Around 1917, Gibson changed their mandolin pickguard design. It is slightly wider than the earlier mandolin pickguards and does not have the hook-tail that went around the bridge (see my other auction) Pickguard will fit all c1917-1924 Gibson mandolins like the A, A-2, A-4, F-2 and F-4, but not the Ivory top A-3. In 1924 Gibson began eliminating the clamp so if you need the 1924 or after style, also see my other auctions. The pickguard is made from solid tortoise shell material. High gloss finish. Complete kit comes with pickguard, pre-attached fingerboard & bridge mounting pins, tortoise support bracket with chrome threaded rod and threaded plastic mounting block, and chrome clamp with cork padding. Also comes with complete installation instructions. All you will need is a small hammer, nail set or countersink, 2 small spring clamps,and super glue. Note: Pickguard shown on c1918 A mandolin is just for reference only. You will not find this pickguard anywhere else.
