What is a pickguard made of?

Most modern pickguards are made of some kind of plastic material, but there can be also some metal or wooden pickguards found. Traditionally they were also made out of tortoiseshell or celluloid, and they can be still found on some old instruments.
Vintage style pickguards were usually made of a single layer of material. More modern designs use 2, 3, or 4-ply pickguard material.

How to attach a pickguard to a guitar?

There are different styles of pickguards for different guitars. Some you just screw on the body of the guitar and some you have to glue them on. On archtop guitars, there is an additional bracket required to mount the pickguard above the guitar top. Check exactly how many screws do you need to attach a pickguard to your guitar and what their location is. Often, there are some small differences between the same guitars made by one maker over time. For example, there are at least 3 different pickguards for Fender Stratocaster depending on the exact model or year of production.

Which pickguards will fit my guitar?

The guitars were made for many years and in this time many manufacturers changed their designs. Sometimes just slightly and sometimes more distinctly. All this causes us some problems today when trying to choose a pickguard to a guitar. You need to double-check every detail like a screw hole placement or pickups cavity routing to make sure you get the right pickguard for your guitar.
