|Tor-tis™ shapes (L-R): small teardrop OM, mid-size teardrop/small MartinD, J-185, J-200, D-28, and D45
Tor-tis™ is a great pick-guard product designed to match the original tortoise-style pick-guards of the '30s and '40s, but with many more advantages. Impact and scratch resistant, it will not shrink or crack. The precast pickguards polish out nicely with a radiused edge so that they appear to have been "finished in." Highly refractive, chemically inert (untouched by all solvents), with the Tor-tis™ resins backed by twenty-five years of industrial use, any tortoise would be proud to sport Tor-tis™ as its carapace.
Our Tor-Tis™ pickguards are shown individually, so you can pick the exact patterning you are looking for.

A customer on Tor-Tis™ pickguards:
"I recently bought one of the Tor-tis D-45 dark pickguards as a replacement on my 1967 Gibson Heritage guitar. The pattern and coloring of the pickguard was outstanding! The quality of the material was very evident upon opening the package. It really added a classy look to my guitar. I would highly recommend one of these for a replacement or a new installation. They are definitely worth the price".
