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.

Brazilian Rose Pickguard 2.0 and Even More!

This is the third pickguard I've received from Thalia (2 other Ebony's on my DN8 and 714) and I couldn't be happier for this one as well as the others. This pickguard is almost identical to the rosewood back and sides on my GS Mini and looks great. It fit fine over the plastic pickguard and could be removed and put on another guitar with very little effort. However, it's staying where it is. Friends comment on it and ask if it's wood. I say yes and they're impressed. Also on this guitar is a nice truss rod cover I got from Thalia and a Taylor blue swirl Thermex pick I got from Thalia. These folks are quality just like their products.

Adding a pick guard to a Taylor nylon string guitar

My pick guard came very quickly and gave me a beautiful result. It was super easy to apply to my guitar without the worry of an adhesive type application. The online video was very informative and I was confident that it would go smoothly, which it did. I’m considering a matching truss Rod cover. Thank you, Thalia. Love your products and your easy to navigate website. Peace…

Very Very beautyfull. Taylor Pickguard Walnuf

Su Taylor 110e Walnut avevo un pickguard black molto anonimo e dall'apparenza povera ed economica. Dopo lunghe ricerche finalmente ho trovato in questo shop qualcosa di davvero bello e sopratutto che aggiunge un tocco di classe alla mia Taylor di fascia economica. Un grazie sincero dall'Italia.
