Pick guard?

Is any one aware of any one who makes adhesive pick guards specifically for selmac type guitars? I've noticed my guitars espaically my D hole is getting quite a lot of marks on the treble area.

    Hi:
    The pick guard material I use can be purchased on ebay.....it's called guitar bra.
    This is a non-adhesive removable cling on guard .
    I order the GB # 9 which is a do it Yourself Blank 9" x 12" Sheet of their material and will make 3 or 4 guards.
    I just cut it to the size I want....and they really work well .
    I put a permanent one on once and will never do that again.

    Dave,

    Great post. This is a really good idea and I will start offering this product in my shop as an option.

    Cheers,

    The clear static clilng vinyl stuff can be bought very cheaply at Wal-Mart in the crafts section. It is used to make classy (!) furniture covers as well as other things.

    Be careful though and don't leave it on your guitar for any length of time. Vinyl melts nitrocellulose lacquer.

    Having seen how beat up and scratched selmer style guitars tend to get it is a wonder they did'nt add them any way. I had a look on www.gypsyguitars.com and i see from their archive section that one or two old selmers had pick guards added at some point to save the guitars from any further wear.
