Gibson guard — WTF


yes, McCarty pickguard/pickup combo. They came in single and double pickup models.


If you had an acoustic archtop that you liked and needed occasional amplification, you went with the McCarty- it's a lot like the monkey-on-a-stick Bill Haley used. Back in the day I used to see McCarty pickup/ pickguard setups once in awhile, almost always the single pickup type. I'd imagine doubles are extremely rare.
