Lichty Custom Guitar Pickguards
In the early days at Lichty Guitars there would be this moment when the custom guitar was all strung up and almost ready to ship. One of the finishing touches is the pickguitar. What we realized is that while the guitar looked amazing, putting on a clunky generic “store bought” pickguard really took away from the visual magic of the instrument. Too, the thickness of many available pickguards was extreme and was potentially impacting the sound of the guitar in a negative way.
We did a bit of research and then, thankfully, learned the pickguard ropes from Virginia master luthier Wayne Henderson. Now, each Lichty Guitar comes with the option of a custom pickguard that has been crafted in our shop. They are designed out of epoxy and resin and are crafted to be as thin as possible while offering maximum protection to the soundboard.
It is a finishing detail that really adds that extra touch! No two are alike.
Here are some examples of Lichty custom guitar pickguards:
