Callaham Pickguards for S Model
Our pickguards are made to fit U.S.A. made Fender reissue or relic guitars, and Pre-CBS guitars. Minor fitting may be required on some Made in Japan and Mexican made Fender models. We do two 11-hole patterns: the original 59 to 63 pattern and the late 63 pattern currently used on American Standard guitars. Our 8-hole pattern is the original pattern from late 54 to mid 59.
Getting a good looking single ply guard was very difficult. All that was available was a very bright refrigerator white. We had a 1-ply parchment white material (.060" thick) produced to solve this problem. It is best described as an off white with a yellow hue and was matched to original 56, 57, pickguards that would be considered mint condition. It looks naturally old and gives any guitar a vintage look. It is an acrylic and will not warp like pvc.
In 2007 we started making 3-ply parchment white pickguards made from our same parchment white material as our single ply parchment but now in a 3-ply Parchment (Parchment/Black/Parchment) (.090" thick)
Available options below:
- 1 ply parchment white
- 3 ply mint green
- 3 ply parchment white
