Pickguard designs

Part of the unique appearance of Schwung Guitars results from the pickguard design.

We offer seven different shapes: the Delta, the Shark, the Coolchrome, the Elegance, the Pythagoras, the Windflow, and the Split – each available in several colours.

The choice of pickguard shape and colour depends partly on the body finish, which needs to harmonize with the pickguard. Furthermore: knobs, hardware and PU covers also need to be in tune with body and pickguard. I will be happy to advise you.

The ‘S’ in the headstock is taken from the same material as the pickguard, or has the same color as the body finish. First choose the shape from the 7 options, then choose the color.

Pickguard colors

From left to right: white pearl, ivory, cream, yellow (1 ply), mint green, cream pearl, gold/brown pearl, purple pearl, blue-yellow dessin, dark blue pearl, green pearl, tortoise, black (not shown on the photo).

 

Topwood options

  • No top (solid body entirely of Alder, Mahogany, or else)
  • Maple top, for fuller and slightly more complex tone
  • Flamed maple top, with transparent or burst finish
  • Quilted maple top, with transparent or burst finish

 

Body finish colors

Most colors can also be done in transparent, in case of a flamed or quilted top.
No paint finish is also an option, in which case the body can be ‘road worn’, dyed with any color and finished with a special oil.
