    I'm looking for a "real" bakelite pickguard (5 hole, no bevel) but cut for a humbucker in the neck position.

    I thought of Callaham, but their website's not working. Anybody know any other sources? Thanks.

    Do they have bakelite? I thought theirs were plastic.

    I have the WD bakelite guard on my American Pro tele. I like the look of it. I did have to trim about 3/16" out at the neck to get it to fit. I was surprised that I needed to trim it since I was swapping it with a WD 3 ply guard. It's also razor sharp, so be careful when installing your pickup into it. I got a nasty slice on my thumb. Had to text with one thumb for a week,lol.
