Decoboom's Tomahawk pickguard can be custom cut for your Telecaster, and features original artwork engraved on high-quality 3-ply acrylic.
The dropdown menus on this page will allow you to customize this guard to your specifications. Please use the reference guide to help you navigate the dropdown system for these and other models.
For every design we create, we do hours of careful research, drawing, and drafting to create an original piecewhich will complement your guitar.
The design is manufactured by engraving acrylic with carbide-tipped steel bits. We start with a custom-made 3-ply acrylic, which we then engrave using a rotary CNC engraver. We set the depth of the tool to engrave down through the top layer, revealing the contrasting color of the middle layer. By engraving, rather than printing, we create a design with depth and contour--a work of art that will last through the ages.
We will cut this material according to your specifications using a CNC for a precise fit, with countersunk screw holes and beveled edges. We offer numerous custom options for shapes, pickups, and controls. If you can't find what you need through our extensive dropdown menu system, pleasecontact us for further assistance.
The pictures shown here are meant to accurately represent the color options of this design, but please keep in mind that the the final product you receive will depend on the options you choose.
This page includes templates for most of the products we offer as part of our standard lineup.
If you are looking for a pickguard shape or configuration not listed here, please contact us. We are experts at creating custom configurations or custom shapes that will fit your needs.
For example, we can do a Strat pickguard with three P90 pickups, a Jazzmaster pickguard without the upper controls, or a Tele pickguard with a custom neck pickup route (such as a humbucker or a Charlie Christian pickup). We can also create a custom shape profile for uncommon pickguard shapes, or to help you with your own original creation. The possibilities are endless for customization; simply contact us for more information.
The list below is not exhaustive, but please use the following PDF templates as a reference for some of the more common pickguard shapes we offer, and contact us if you need help in any way.
