Hi,
I've been restoring an old bass I pickup up at a market.
Everything is looking pretty good so far but the scratch plate was faded and ugly, I tried painting it but it keeps coming off so I'm just going to buy a new one. The only problem is I can't find one identical online, I've looked countless sites and either the holes don't line up. I'm not bothered if it's already loaded or not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm in Australia but can order it from overseas.

Edit: apologies, turns out the image didn't get attached, I uploaded it to imgur instead.



Sorry I can't figure out how to resize it.

That's a great idea, but the only issue is I don't have access to such tools that would be required to cut the material.

If you have no luck, there are certainly people who do it professionally. If you struggle, ask a luthier.

Thanks for everyone's help, really appreciate it!
Ended up ringing ever music shop in my area (There's about 30), one finally said that they could order a blank in and drill the holes for $35!!
