AxetremeCreations is proud to be one of the very few companies who makes all their custom guitar pickguards and the material they are made from….right here in the USA! We design, manufacture, and create all our own guards and love to push the envelope with materials and designs. If there is something you would like to see, please let us know. We invite you to read through the following F & Q page and if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Q: How thick are your guards?
A: Our guards are a custom 2-ply material, and are .090″, the same thickness as a standard 3-ply guard.
Q: What does the edge look like on your guards?
A: We have a couple different styles of guards, but all are either a 2-ply or a 1-ply. The 2-ply guards are the same thickness as a traditional 3-ply guard and have a white back and edge that is beveled 45 degrees like vintage guards (black is available custom order as well). The 1-ply guards we make are .060″ thick, and have a square edge. These are mostly the engraved pickguards.
Q: Can these stratch easy?
A: Well….our pickguards are basically the same as a traditional 3-ply or 1-ply guard as far as wear. There is one difference though….it can be re-polished out! If after a few years of picking your guard begins to look dull. Want it to look new again?? Simply wetsand your guard with 2000 grit paper or finer, then polish with a plastic polish (you could even use a buffer….if you are good!) She will be good as new again!
Q: Will the graphic wear off, I play hard!
A: Never! All our graphics are embedded inside the guard.
Q: I do not see my model listed, or cannot find a design I like…..now what?
A: Email us!!! We have created literally thousands of guards over the years, not all manufacturers or models are listed.
Q: I am unsure about whether your guard will fit my guitar….what can I do??
A: We are constantly adding PDF Templates to the website that you can check your model against for the perfect fit. If you do not see yours, no worries….we can always make one custom for you!
Q: Is there shielding on the back of your guards?
A: If there was shielding from the factory, we most likely have it on ours with one major difference: We use COPPER! Although copper is a premium item these days, we have tested different materials and found that copper works the best with our guards. If the guard comes with shielding, we will typically show a photo of it on the item page.
Q: How long do custom guards take to have made?
A: Making something completely unique to each client is not cheap, easy, or fast! Custom guards take between 10-15 business days (2-3 weeks) to make. Once done though, you will have the ONLY one like it!
