ertmermusic offers handmade metal guitar and bass pickguards, truss rod covers, guitar picks and other guitar parts made in Germany.
Each part is entirly handmade with traditional engraving tools. I don't use laser or any other form of CNC. Every part is an individual piece.
The pickguards have either an engraved design, a cut out design or a combination of both . There are available in aluminum, brass or copper. Most cut out pickguards come with a second background pickguard that will cover the cavities.
