    Hello, I'm hoping someone knows of a place where they sell "Bronze Moto" blank material for pickguards. It's basically a perloid pickguard in Bronze color.

    I've searched the web, but no luck so far.

    Thanks. :cool:

    a bronze pearloid? I've never heard of or scene such a thing. You're not thinking of tortoise, are you?

    This is the color. It is close to the copper, but not quite:

    Ah, I see. And you just want the blank material for a custom project?

    Yes, I need to make a custom pickgaurd. The copper might be a good alternative, but from the picutures it looks like the bronze version has a little more orange in it which even though subtle, but will work better on my bass.

    They could very well be the same stuff, photographed with different lighting.
