Tortoloid pickguards reproduce the look of actual tortoise shell, complete with semi-transparent amber areas that intensify the soundboard color.

Each Tortoloid pickguard is individually made.
Like natural shell, no two have exactly the same pattern.

Durable, self-adhesive, a mere .025" thin! They won’t dampen tone, or shrink. The edges can be beveled with fine sandpaper.

Tortoloid is a handsome material developed by luthier Mario Proulx, using poured resins and dyes to reproduce the color and 3-dimensional depth of antique Hawskbill tortoise shell (antique guitar picks were used for sampling the colors).

Item# Dimensions Radius at soundhole edge
2090 Modern Martin Shape  0.025" x 7" x 3-13/16"
(0.64mm x 177.80mm x 96.84mm)
2-3/8" (60.32mm)
2091 Oversize  0.025" x 7-1/8" x 4"
(0.64mm x 180.98mm x 101.6mm)
2-3/8" (60.32mm)

When in doubt, order an oversized pickguard. Trim and file to fit.

Absolutely gorgeous, the perfect pickguard for my custom Scott McNeill OM. Love the warm look and natural feel.

Tortoloid Pickguard

Wow. Really cool. Just the thing for my Gibson L4A. It looked bare without the pickguard. Very easy to work with, I had to trim the sound hole diameter but it was not hard to have it look like a bought one.

Outstanding Pickguard!

I purchased one of the Tortoloid Dreadnought Pickguards as a replacement for the original pickguard on my Martin Dreadnought. The fit was perfect. The new Tortoloid Pickguard looks fantastic on my guitar.
