      Comments about El Dorado Hand-Tooled Leather Tele Pickguard:

      Really beautiful pickguard with a great feel. Lived up to my expectations for quality from El Dorado. Only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because the backing is a stiff cardboard of sorts which does not keep the pickguard flat in humidity changes. This might not be as much a problem if you have an 8 hole tele pickguard, but with 5 holes the leather can warp up off the body. Just be aware. I was able to remove mine and flatten it back out for the most part since. Haven't had issues since i started keeping it the case.

      I also had to trim mine slightly to properly fit around the control panel. Otherwise, great fit!

      Many people mentioned how getting the holes lined up properly can be tricky. I recommend sliding the leather pick guard over your existing pickguard, line it up how you want it to lay, and firmly press the backing on the leather pickguard into the screws holding the original pickguard in place. This will leave a set of small x shaped indents in the back of the leather pickguard that you can use as a guide.

        The tan looks great on my old cream Tele! Installation is pretty simple. Just take your time and get the holes in the right places.

            This cover really allows for a satnd out tele to be had! I put the tan color one onto my Olypimc whit tele and man - It makes it look really nice , western, and makes it kind of one-of-a-kind deal!

            The only hard part was to drill your own holes in the pickgaurd, but just be sure you line them up correctly

            More style, Fewer trips to the bar

            Comments about El Dorado Hand-Tooled Leather Tele Pickguard:

            If you like style, these guards rock. My 52' tele stands out in the crowd! I just picked up another tele, so another guard is on it's way. Sure they cost a little more, but if you drink two less pitchers during your next few shows, It's not hard to get ahold of one! There is nothin' better than music!

            Leather pickguard

            By Papi

            from Greenwood Lake, NY

            Comments about El Dorado Hand-Tooled Leather Tele Pickguard:

            The pickguard I received was very hard and had a very plastic feel to it. The Telecaster pickguard was slightly warped, upon installation I would have had to drill an additional hole in my guitar (plus the pickguard) and added another screw to get it to lie completely flat. I expected to get something that felt a little like leather and less like plastic for this price.
