Are the guards made in the USA

Tell me about the testing done

AxeGuardz® have been tested by the world’s leading guitar manufacturer and proven to reduce airborne noise interference at noticeable levels. Sixty-cycle hum was also reduced significantly. These results were conducted by the companies custom shop managers and the results were confirmed consistent across all the guitar and amp combinations used.

While we would love to name the guitar company and release the test results data, at this time we are not able to due to corporate legal bindings. As soon as we are able we will release any information made available.

Will the guards bolt directly on

We’ve created as close of an OEM fit as possible and production tolerances are near perfect. Each new guard should line up perfectly and the pickups whether original or aftermarket, should fit with exacting precision. If you do experience any fitment issues please contact us and we’ll solve the issue immediately. 

Will my existing pickups fit

We’ve made sure that original and aftermarket pickups with fit with exacting precision. Simply use your old hardware on the new guard and your ready to go with cleaner, better sound. 

Do not over tight screws as you can create a surface dent in the material. If you do notice a slight dimple simply back the screw off about a 1/8 turn. If you do over tighten and permanently dent the material we are not responsible for this and the product will NOT be returnable. We have meticulously checked every guard that’s shipped and are 100% sure they are defect free before leaving the shop.

Custom guards and bass guitars

We’re currently not manufacturing custom configured guards but hope to in the near future. We’ll also be adding bass guitar guards soon so keep checking back. If you have a specific guitar or bass you’re looking for please let us know so we can put it on the list.
