The Golden Gate brand from Beyond Guitars
is a full line of instrument parts and accessories.
This F-4001 guitar pick guard is likely the easiest addition you can make
to your flattop guitar with either a damaged or non-existent pickguard.
Simply peel and stick to your top, on a guitar such as a Dreadnought
or 000 style, and you’ve just added a handsome finishing touch
that will also protect the wood from damage if you play with a pick.
You can see what happens if you don’t, just by looking at Willie Nelson’s
classical guitar he’s named “Trigger”.
Now, Classical guitars are an example of a fingerstyle guitar,
never inteded to be played with a pick, so they do not have a pick guard.
But Willie likes to use a pick, and he didn’t add a pickguard and he’s
carved a giant hole in his guitar where there used to be wood.
. Don’t let this happen to your guitar, Free your pick! they aren’t expensive,
just add a simple pickguard and you’re set!
For us, the black really sets off nicely with a natural blond spruce top,
and the tortoise colored F-4002 version
looks best on a sunburst.. That’s just a suggestion.
we’ll leave that choice up to you!
It is the most popular pickguard shape in use today.
Made of shiny black ABS, it will fit most Martin-style guitars
and many other brands. The cutout is the standard 5 1/8-inch diameter
which will adapt to the typical guitar sound hole rosette.
You’ll love it!
