    LMII's gold MOP dots are the only ones that are shown having a gold color. Most gold MOP I've seen on line is brownish or very pale. I was wondering if anyone here has used LMII's gold MOP dots and if they look as good as the picture on the website?

    You may get a couple pieces with that type of hue, but don't bet on the majority. I have rarely seen MOP with that yellow/ gold of a hue.

    You may want to also consider * www.LuthierSupply.com * I've ordered a few things from him in the past and the quality seems pretty good.

    If you have the money (If you use shell enough), a good place is the "duke of pearl", although, the minimum is $300. Grizzly, LMI and stewmac get their shell from here..... I just don't care for what LMI and Stewmac consider, .060", ends up being less. One other guy to consider is Bill Swank (who I get mine through).

    Gold MOP, goes from brown up to pale yellow in colors.

    Thank you all for your help. Since its not likely that I'll get ones with the coloring I would like with out buying 100 to get 11 or 12 good ones, I'm going to look into gold pearloid dots.
