New 100% real celluloid tortoise shell replacement pickguard for a circa mid-1950s to 1960s Gibson Jumbo flat-top guitars J-45 and J-50, (SJ) Southererner Jumbo and SJN. This pickguard is commonly referred to as the "batwing" pickguard. Made from .04" thick celluloid and comes with 3M adhesive transfer tape backing, so all you have to do is peel and stick it on your guitar. Glossy finish with slightly beveled edges. Dimensions: 9 3/4" x 4". 4 3/4" diameter soundhole cut-out. Gibson also used this size pickguard on some of the 60s-era LG-series guitars like the LG-2 and LG-3. See my other auction for the narrower LG-series pickguard. Picture of pickguard on 1950s era J-50 is just for reference only. If you are looking for a period correct vintage replacement pickguard, you will not find a better one.

If you need a left-handed version of this pickguard, you can simply purchase the one listed and "Add Note To Seller" indicating that you want a lefty. There's no additional charge but please allow an additional 3-4 days lead time.
