Can anyone recommend someone who can make a pickguard for a 1959 ES-355 with authentic looking plastic? I’ve seen replica guards for double cut LP Juniors that have plastic that looks like the stuff that Gibson used in the 50s - 60s so I know it’s out there

Oh man, This is Great! I've been looking for a 355 typr guard to put on my `64 ES-335TDC reissue. This is perfect! The guard I do have on it now is an actual `64, but I love the tort guards! Thanks Arch!!

Mirabella Restorations makes top quality repro pick guards; also Pickguardian: not sure about the true vintage plastic availability. Might also check with Charlie Gelber on The Gibson ES 335 website on who he recommends for the best quality repro 'guards. He is THE vintage 3x5 guru.
