GuitarSafe™ Micro-Suction Technology

Our proprietary GuitarSafe™ Micro-Suction Pads are modeled after a Gecko's foot, using suction instead of adhesive to adhere to your guitar. 

We tested multiple formulations of micro-suction material before finalizing the formula for our GuitarSafe™ Micro-Suction Pads.  Some formulations were far too aggressive and others not quite aggressive enough.  Instead, we wanted it to adhere safely to the guitar's finish but not so aggressively that it could cause damage to delicate finishes. The pad's surface contains thousands of microscopic air pockets that create partial vacuums between the puck and the target surface. It isn’t pressure sensitive and won't leave any residue behind. It can also be used repeatedly without losing its gripping power.

Lexie’s Thalia Brazilian Black Cherry & Mother of Pearl Pickguard 2.0 Review

The Brazilian Black Cherry & Mother of Pearl Pickguard 2.0 is not just a beautiful addition to spruce up your guitar but it is also extremely easy to put onto your guitar! I have been a recurring customer of Thalia for a long time and all of their products are reliable, great quality, and beautifully unique. I have also purchased a custom capo, thrust rod, pick guard, bridge pins, and expression system rings. I have been so happy with every single product I have received from Thalia :)

I am very pleased with my new pick guard from Thalia and feel that it compliments my Thalia truss rod cover and capo on my Taylor 324ce!

Brazilian Black Cherry Pickguard 2.0

I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful addition to my Taylor. The Brazilian Black Cherry Pickguard 2.0 Thalia made for me looks amazing. The woodgrain is beautiful and the clean cut edges and finish are top notch. Thank you Thalia team!

Pretty Good

I had hoped to put this on a vintage left-handed Taylor that was being converted to right-handed. Unfortunately, the pickguard’s sound hole radius didn’t match the rosette on the Taylor. I ended up using it on a custom build, it also did not match the rosette on the custom build. It’s built well, so I don’t mind having to mount it closer than it was intended to be. I wish that both permanent and non-permanent adhesive were included with every pickguard sold.
