    Default Tort, single-ply, adhesive back?

    Some of you are networked with good Luthiers, and others of you are DYI-savvy. I'd be grateful for some leads on pickguard material...

    I'm making a pickguard for my LPSpecial. I need a sheet about 6" x 10" single-ply tort with adhesive backing, which is used mostly for acoustic guitars. Color preference in the light brown to yellow range. I've done my internet homework and none of the usual websites have what I need. But I'm not very knowledgeable of the sites and may have missed exactly what I'm lookin for.

    Thanks much for any leads,

    Doug

    this is about all i can find. you may have to apply your own adhesive somehow.

    I'll have my drink in hand and just give cold stares at my guitar from across the room and say out loud, "this could be you in my hand but you wanted to suck so now you just sit over there and think about that for awhile".---------sam_in_cali

    Thanks, Helter. Six years ago I found adhesive-backed sheets, single-ply, used more for acoustic guitars. Just can't recall where I get it now. Grope and ye shall find has always been a motto that serves me well.
