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.

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.

      Can't get the bubbles out. Does not look like the picture. You can see all the bubbles. Could not get them out. I know they sell adhesive clear pick guards. Maybe those are see through

        Comments about Taylor Universal Reusable Acoustic Pickguard:

        I have a 2007 Taylor GS4, satin finish, that was designed without the black plastic pickguard.
        I've had this on the guitar since I bought it new in 2008. It hasn't lost its "cling"; appears invisible,
        protects the finish; Great price for all the protection it provides and makes the guitar top look clean.

            I have an acoustic bass which is quite big. Its surface is not polished. This pick guard is just a flimsy piece of clear plastic that slides off when you hang it up

                Can't complain about fast, free delivery. Despite my careful attempt to install, still have bubbles under the guard. But it stays on and protects the finish, so good enough, and what else can you do if you don't want messy glue on your gorgeous wood?

                  I find excellent value and protection for the soundboard from errant pick contact. I have purchased and used three of these and am extremely pleased.

                      I hate writing reviews but after reading a negative comment I had to throw in my two cents. First, if your guitar does not have a glossy finish stop reading, because this product will NOT work well on your guitar. If your guitar does not have a pick guard, this is the best alternative I have found. It's barely noticeable and has no problem sticking, I have it on a couple of my Gibson's. But... for the price, do not expect miracles. Buy a guitar with a pick guard. Also, it gets bubbly if you try and reuse it.

                          The first couple of days the pick guard would adhere to the guitar. By the third day, it began moving around the guitar face and then falling off completely. Within a week, I lost it. The pick guard is a waste of money and I can only add it to lessons learned the hard way.
