Best place to get a tort pick guard for a '76 Precision bass?

    I know it's not period correct for my '76 since it has the original black pick guard on the sunburst body, but I love the look of the earlier 70's P's in sunburst with a tort pick guard.

    So where's the best place to get one that looks the same as an original (without shelling out the $$$ for an original) with the correct number of holes and holes for the thumb rest and covers?

    Terrapin guitars gives you a choice of vinyl or celluloid. I think they are around 60 for vinyl and 80 for cell....last time I checked. Could be different now. Friend of mine had a great experience with them. The send you a mock-up pdf to see if it is going to fit. You can trace and send to them too.
