es333 pick guard install
I purchased a short guard and bracket for my es333 but I’m not sure about the proper mounting of the bracket. Any tips
I did this a few years ago. I just looked at numerous photos of ES guitars online, and installed accordingly. The PG sits on top of the block, if that helps. Just study lots of pics and install the bracket where you see it done and you should be fine. Of course, drill pilot holes using a 1/16 bit. You should be good, and should only take a minute. Guards look great on those 333s, BEST bang for the buck ES ever, still have numerous regrets selling mine. Buffed out, with PUP covers, looks like a poor mans 335.
Good advice from Kris. This is pretty much what I did when I installed a long guard on mine. Just check out some photos and go for it. It’s quick and easy.
Without the guard
Also put a short guard on a ES-135 I no longer have.

In a nut shell the sequence of operations is . Mount/secure the pickguard at the neck pickup the body. Position the mounting bracket at the binding and test fit several times to find the right location and relative position of the threaded position of the screw into the mounting block. You need to fiddle with this adjustment as it effects the angle of the guard relative to the body and you want to ensure that the screw is hidden behind the guard once it’s in place. Last step is to glue the mounting block the pickguard. Done. Take your time and triple check everything. Look at lot of pics to establish where the mounting bracket should be placed near the binding. Since 333’s are not an actual model that had pickguards, there’s not a right or wrong way to do it. I would personally base it though on what they did originally; for long guards look at ’59-’61, for short pickguard look at ’62 or later.

This set is designed to be used on the Gibson models 333, 335, and 340. You may be able to adapt it to other Gibson models (see pics for measurements).
If you are on a budget and need to get a guard back on your guitar, this is a great set to get you back in business fast. Includes all parts necessary for mounting: side screw, corner screw, black nitro block, guard, and bracket.
Excellent value on this pickguard and bracket set that is a good replacement for the Gibson thinline models 333 and 335. Very economical solution to get a guard back on your guitar fast! Comes with nickel hardware. See drawing below for measurement. If you are trying to fit this on a non-Gibson guitar, please compare your guitar with the measurements in the drawing before bidding. I do not guarantee a fit on any other guitars besides the Gibson 333 and 335. (The portion of the pickguard that sticks up between the pickups can be made smaller using a flat file to remove mterial if you need to ‘size’ it). This is the high quality AllParts guard that is an equal to the original Gibson, in geometry, hole placement, and appearance…I give it an A+ as a replica!…you can’t tell the difference. AllParts sticker on back (which you can remove if you prefer).
Includes the same bracket used on the factory Stromberg guitars! see last picture below. Set also includes one 5-ply beveled vintage-style short 335 guard. Nice quality, with pre-drilled hole in the corner (99% of customers have reported this hole lined up on their factory Gibson 335). Also includes one nickel bracket…..bracket has a one inch side bracket and 2.25 inch rod…the correct 335 size. ABS mounting block and side screw included. (The fit of the bracket at the ‘shoulder’ will be determined by the placement of the hole in the guitar’s rim; we have found this bracket to be a workable fit on the Gibson thinline models and copies of this type of guitar). ABS block requires super glue installation under guard.
Most people have been very happy with this set, and I’ve sold alot of them. If you receive the set and decide it will not work on your project, all we ask is that you pay shipping BOTH ways in returning in order not to place undue burden on a family business. Please measure before bidding. Thank you!
Nice quality working set at a great price!
