      OVERVIEW

      A removable pickguard for your acoustic guitar.

      Everybody wants to keep their finish as pristine as possible, and the Taylor Universal Reusable Acoustic Pickguard is looking out for your guitar. It's clear, so your color shines right through, and it attaches to your guitar without any glue! You can even remove and re-apply it. Its universal shape fits any Taylor acoustic guitar.

      Advisory for older guitars (pre-1995) with nitrocellulose lacquer or conversion varnish: These finishes may be damaged as a result of using this pickguard. Always remove pickguard from guitar when not in use. All glossy finished Taylor Guitars built in 1995 or later use a UV cured finish that is less susceptible to damage, though it is recommended to remove pickguard when not in use.

      FEATURES
      • Universal shape
      • No glue based adhesion

      This thing is thick enough for protection, but not too glassy to be easily detected. Exactly the kind I wanted.
      It's self-adhesive, so very easy to put on the guitar. Also, removable so I guess reusable(jk).

      I would recommend not pealing the whole thing off the sheet, just the sound-hole shape part,
      use that as a guide to make sure it's in the right position, stick it onto your guitar, graduately peal it off the sheet and stick it onto the guitar simultaneously. This way leaves the minimum amount of air bubble under the film (similar to for cellphone, ipod protector kind of trick)
      You could also get a rubber roller (at art supply) to get rid of the bubbles; for a Taylor I think it's worth the trouble.

      In the past, all guitars were made with a gloss surface. NOW, much, much more common is a satin (matte) varnish that feels and looks like unfinished wood.

      THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT ADHERE TO SATIN OR UNFINISHED SURFACES, which are most common in new acoustic guitars. You can get some double-sided tape, but that's it. Unfortunately, there simply is no other type of temporary pick guard to use. So it's either this with two-sided tape, or have a permanent pick guard put on your guitar. Or suffer the scratches (which show up a lot on satin surfaces).

      Go with having a pick guard professionally mounted on your new guitar.

      It's also a bit pricey for what is essentially the same as a removable window decal.

          This is a great product but was shipped in a package that was the wrong shape, kinking the protective film. I called customer service and they replaced the product.

          Decent protection but bubbles under the pick guard are unavoidable. So use for practice and remove for shows

                    Guitar looks great with out a pick guard, but I still want to protect finish

These crystal clear, removable guards will protect your glossy Taylor finish from light dings and scratches. (For maximum protection, we recommend our standard, permanent pickguards).

                      I bought a used Yamaha CG-150CCE classical acoustic cutaway that comes w/o a pickguard. My MF rep suggested the "static-cling" reusuable transparent pickguard - it needs no adhesive, just apply it to the top of the guitar around the sound-hole, and the static properties keep it secure. Great solution! The Taylor brand helped sell it for me, as I'm sure they wouldn't sell anything like this for their guitars if it wasn't good. It works fine, looks good and, because the pickguard material is very thin flexible lmaterial, it doesn't alter the guitar sound. Great option - and will order a couple more for my other guitars. Thanks MF for pointing me to it.

                          Works as advertised. Against the black graphite of my RainSong looking close up you can see hundreds of tiny air bubbles. The major bubbles were easily removed. I suspect on a natural spruce top you would not be able to see these tiny bubbles. From a few feet away they are invisible.
