    002.jpg 003.JPG I have a 52 tele. things check out pretty good. serial #1096 with initial TG under the bolt on section of the neck and date 2/20/52. I am told it is not the original black guard because it is not opaque. Any thoughts.

    Probably correct re the pg. Those look like suspiciously large pg screws. I could be wrong.

    What's the background on it?

    Looks well cared for.

    That's the right color to be a blackguard.

    That PG looks like plastic from your pics- the originals were a black pressed fiberboard stuff with a lacquer coating on top.
