I need a sheet of Black Pearl pickguard in 3 ply. The standard 9" x 15" should work well for me.

I am planning on swapping out the guard on my cheap PRS:

To a nice black pearl for a much better look.
I found this site but wasn't sure if its good or not because I have never bought pickguard material before

http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/pickguard_material.htm

I checked the pinned posts and could not find one that supplied what I needed and the store I found has a good price compared to the few others I have found.


So is that a good store to buy from?
if not, what is a good one with the material I'm looking for?

I recently made a black pearl PG for my Parker- used a blank from Warmoth. Very nice material, good price, fast shipping.

Thanks guys, that Warmoth site looks like it has great prices but it also has a 25$ min. order and a piece of pickguard comes in at just $23...

I'll have a look around to see if I can get some covers or something for my pickups as they are currently white.
but then again, I may just swap them out with black ones some day as the current ones are cheap..........

I cant seem to find any Black Pearl there.

anyways i did some quick work on photoshop just now and attempted to put a strat single pickup guard in place of my PRS

turns out its not close enough haha

but it looks great

Hmmm.. shame you want pearloid stuff, cause for plain stuff the best place is not guitar specialist places, as they rip you off, whereas at a proper plastics firm they won't charge you as much.

I'll have a look at a local guitar shop some time this week to see what they have. Monmouth music has a repair service open weekdays and they may have some pickguard material on hand that I can get at a fair price.
