I have a 1972 Alvarez Model 5024. The thing is in very good shape, except for the pick guard which is cracking very badly. A friend of mine gave the thing to me, I definetly intend to keeep it and I'm looking for suggestions to salvage the pick guard. I haven't been able to locate a new pickguard. I am considering installing a clear pick guard over the thing just to keep the cracked pieces intact. Some of the pieces are loose. I appreciate any advice.
