Source for vintage fender style 3 ply pickguard material

Post: # 1403607Post Hurb »

Looking for some pickguard material in parchment or cream with the thin black stripe found under tort. But without the tort attached.

I can only find the the modern stuff with the thick black line.

Needs to be like this

The spitfire guy uses it under his tort so it must be out there somewhere!

Still can not find any.
Closest I got was a company doing a 4 ply tort and the wbw under the tort was right but they were no help when asked if they could sell without the tort layer.

I have ordered some plastic sheeting from ebay that I think is the right thickness. But not sure if it is the right plastic. Or if I can glue it together.

Time will tell.

Didn’t you say you had a source for proper Mustang/Jaguar knobs?
