    Did EBMM ever make clear guards or are they all aftermarket?

    I'm pretty sure all my clear guards are aftermarket....although Dargin got me one once, so maybe not.

    That’s what I thought. I’ve never seen anything new with a clear guard on it.

    Didn’t Tony Levin have a StingRay many moons ago with a clear pick guard with a collage of picks under it ?

    I think it was more than just under the guard. If I recall correctly, he superglued picks all over that bass.

    But then it burned up in his barn fire.

    Clear guards were pretty common on some finishes in the '80s. I've seen many on Bluebursts, Trans Reds, or Sunbursts, for example. I don't know, however, whether they were made by EBMM in-house or sourced externally.

    Unlike more modern replacements, the original clear guards were very thin - around 1.5 mm - and tended to develop cracks around the screw holes.
