Real celluloid tortoise shell medium blank sheet for guitar pickguards luthier
1 - 7 1/4” x 11 x .05” medium sheet
This is a very hard to find high-quality .05” thick (nearly 1/16”) 100% real celluloid that has a classic vintage deep red tortoise shell pattern seen on so many pre-1970 acoustic guitars. Each sheet is enough material for two large pickguards like a Gibson J-50 or four small pickguards similar to a Martin D-18 or OM, or a Gibson J-45 or L-00. Diagram shown is for size reference only. First picture shown is a scan of a 5 1/2” x 7 1/4” area as a sample of the pattern and color of this material. Both sides are factory polished but will have light surfaces scratches and machine marks on some of the edges. Tortoise pattern will vary from piece to piece. Other sizes and quantities available.
