Thin celluloid tortoise shell medium blank sheet for guitar pickguards
1 sheet - 7” x 11" x .03” (17.8 cm x 28 cm) medium sized sheet of thick translucent celluloid tortoise shell for guitar pickguards.
This is a very hard to find high-quality .05” thick (nearly 1/16”) 100% real celluloid with the classic vintage deep red tortoise shell pattern seen on so many pre-1970 acoustic and electric 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.
First picture shown is a scan of a sample 7” x 11” sheet (double the size of this sheet) for color and pattern reference only. Tortoise pattern will vary from piece to piece. Most sheets are slightly over-sized with some extra material.
Note: Both sides are factory finish only with some surface scratches and will require light sanding and buffing for a glossy finish.
