Our guards are exclusive, also rare sought by lovers of the Vintage era of musical instruments.
Even within our productions we offer "rarities" such as single layer celluloid nitrates, 3 layers in porcelain finishes, real mint, white parchment and even 3 black layers!
We can also make tremolo backplate in celluloid nitrate! we do
us! We can say that we are the only ones in the world for the most hysterical and freaks of the American guitar of the years
50 and 60.

 Acoustic sounds of Real nitrate celluloid guards .

Celluloid nitrate affects the resonance of the instrument, many do not believe it but after so many years working with them, we do observe differences vs stock plastic, abs.

The nitrate bite acoustically without amplification is more defined, some more woody nuances we find in its resonance!
The fuller mid-range and we also eliminate static electricity from synthetic materials such as plastic, abs and derivatives.

In addition to getting the history correct for the most obsessive guitarists like us!

All are advantages, it is the real thing!

All backed by more than 20 years working on the guitars that we are passionate about and the technical capacity of a team that has worked, works for and for him.
vintage tone!

this is the
difference !

Inflammability * calm ;

This is possibly the most exaggerated myth of all time. In fact, celluloid is flammable. But it doesn't come close to what people claim on web forums. It is clear that these people have not worked with him. It will not ignite by sanding or polishing celluloid. We have vigorously sanded, sawn and polished celluloid many times and not once has it been a problem. If you expose celluloid to an open flame, it will ignite immediately and burn brightly. But so will many things exposed to fire. If you drop your cigarette on Celluloid, it probably won't burst into flames either. It will burn out and I wouldn't recommend it, but again, the same is true for your sofa at home. If you try to make things catch fire, they will catch fire. I have not seen celluloid cause a problem nor has a single event of celluloid bursting into flames been verified without being exposed to conditions that will burn most household items. In short, don't expose your guitar to open flames, leave it near fire, heat to intolerable levels ... and you'll be fine.
