Each of our 1 ply 0.120” Acrylic back plates with the rounded and polished edge are custom hand manufactured in our shop specifically for each customer.  They start off being cut out of a sheet of Acrylic with a CNC laser which creates the basic back plate shape. We then create the round-over edge effect by hand with a table router where the back plate is affixed to a routing template where we trim the back plate to it’s final size and create the rounded perimeter edge.  From there the back plates rounded edge is hand sanded with a fine sandpaper to remove any tooling marks left behind by the router bit. The smoothly sanded rounded edge can then be polished with a special buffing wheel and a polishing compound used exclusively for Acrylic which creates the highly polished and glossy rounded edge.  The back plates mounting holes are then countersunk and a final polishing of the entire back plate is completed.  It’s a fairly long process to create one of these unique back plates, but we feel that final product is one that stands above the typical Strat® back plate that have been produced the same way for over 50 years.  This unique rounded and polished edge is only available on our Black or White 1 Ply 0.120" Acrylic back plates and pickguards.

Typical turn-around time from order placement to shipment is up to 14 days.  Holiday work-loads sometimes may increase turn-around time, but keep in mind, we don't waste any time in getting these prepared, packed and shipped on their way to you. 

Each back plate is custom manufactured for each customer and cannot be exchanged or refunded.

Modern Black or White 1 Ply 0.120'' Acrylic Back Plate With Rounded and Polished Edge Detail

Acrylic pickguards and back plates are more fragile than the typical vinyl ones most are familiar with. Always use the utmost of care when installing components into an Acrylic pickguard, never tighten any fastener too tight and never tighten any perimeter mounting screw any tighter than just to the point where the screw barely snugs the pickguard or back plate down to the surface of the body.  Never flex or put undue pressure on any part of the Acrylic pickguard or back plate or you will break it. 

IMPORTANT ACRYLIC CLEANING NOTE: When cleaning any Acrylic pickguard or back plate ONLY USE the following approved cleaners. Use of any other cleaning product may damage the Acrylic.

  1. Novus #1, Plastic Clean and Shine.
  2. Kleenmaster Brillianize.

Both of these products can be purchased from a company called "Tap Plastics". Here is a direct link to the item page for the Kleenmaster Brillianize and here is a link for the Novus #1.
