    Looking for a half pickguard for my Sadowsky Tokyo JT.

    Who makes them?

    Thinking of getting a tortoise on the natural ash body. Mine has a clear pickguard now.

    Thanks

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I've never seen them available as an aftermarket item, so I'd reason it's something that can only be made custom by Sadowsky or another outfit that makes custom guards.

    Some of the custom makers can use a tracing of the pickguard, others want you to send the PG in to them.

    A while back, Roger quoted something around $75 - $ 100 USD (I forget)to make a new one, and he didn't need a tracing or anything. The same work from Chandler or Jeannie's Pickguards might be less, but they'd probably need a template of some sort.

    Yeah I checked Chadler and the have the vintage Sadowsky pickguards but not the half ones.
    The Sadowsky ones are much thicker than standard ones.

    Do you have a homepage for Jeannie , searched and the page wouldnt come up.

    thanks
