Anyone know where I can get a tortoiseshell tremolo cover for a Bullet?
The ones that don't have the offset middle screw holes. I know I get an offset one and drill new holes but this is one that I've modded and recently refinished and would prefer to keep the new finish unblemished.

It's a custom sea foam green with a tortoiseshell p-guard. I have a white tremolo cover on there now, which looks ok, but....
All I've found online are solid coloured ones that have the "in-line" screw holes.

Any help appreciated...

Anything you buy (if you can find a ready-made one) probably won't match the pickguard. Tortoiseshell is a general term applied to about a hundred different colors/patterns.

If that were my guitar and I wanted a match, I would contact the maker of the pickguard I used, obtain a piece of identical material, and make one.

If you got your pickguard from WD, you can send them a tracing of your current cover plate and they will make one using their tort material.

Thanks PG. I didn't know they would do that!
I'll have to check my records, but I think I might have got the p/guard from WD. I've that guard for a few years now (been on at least two guitars!)
