OEM Factory Spec Nickel Short Pickguard Support Bracket for Gibson mandolins
Fox Guitars is very pleased to finally be able to offer brand new, 100% made in the USA, very finely crafted parts, machined and plated to the exact dimensions of Gibson’s factory OEM Spec hardware (original equipment manufacturer specifications). The “short” 7/8”-high pickguard support brackets are used for all Gibson mandolins like the F-2, F-4, F-5, A-1, A-50, etc., made after c1921. Countersunk hole for #3 screw will line up exactly with your instrument, making installation easier, holding pickguards firmly in place and at the proper height without any modifications. (see dimension diagram for all measurements)
High-quality nickel-plated finish. The “short” foot is solid plated brass; threaded rod nuts and screw are plated steel; black thread block is hard plastic. In general, the nickel hardware is used for lower-priced A-style mandolins and other instruments. Each pickguard support includes the short foot with 2” long threaded rod, open nut and blind hex nut, black threaded block and 1 - #3x3/8” oval-head Phillips screw.
Parts are also interchangeable with existing Gibson hardware. Some parts sold separately. Hardware also available in two more sizes.
