Bakelite Esquire Pickguard

Vintage correct phenolic sheet material.

Bakelite is a trade name that has been used interchangeably over the years for many different types of early plastic made with phenolic resin.
The sheet material that was used for early Fender pickguards was compressed paper and phenolic resin.
We have found a manufacturer of the modern equivalent product and had these pickguards produced to the vintage specs, including thickness.
Fender would sand and spray their pickguards with nitro.
Ours are raw untreated sheet giving you the option of the natural satin look or sanding and spraying for a glossy finish. All photos are of raw pickguards.

Pickguards ship with a protective plastic film on both sides.

Made in USA.
