Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

Tor-Tis sheet stock

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. 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.

Tor-tissheet stock measures:
4 1/2" x 7 1/4"

The sheets can be softened in warm water then cut with sharp scissors. Bevel the edges with dry 180-200 grit though 1200 grit wet or dry sandpaper, then polish (or buff with a fine wheel).

NOTE: These sheets are not self-adhesive and will need a transfer adhesive applied.
