Some time ago, John Greven invented a new product. It is a faux tortoiseshell called Tor-tis.
This dynamic new polymer material was designed to mimic genuine tortoiseshell in every respect. Not only does it look like real tortoise, it sounds and feels like it too. These pickguards have a lower specific gravity than traditional plastic pickguards, and this allows them (and the top of your guitar) to vibrate more freely.
Please note these photos are a general representation of the color and NOT the exact pick guard that you will receive. Also, due to the fragile nature of this product, there are No Returns on Tortis pick guards.
We accept Visa/Mastercard/American Express/Discover from USA residents and good ol' cash. Personal checks are accepted under the condition that shipment is delayed until the check clears the bank. TN residents add 9 3/4% sales tax.
We ship Fedex ground insured, unless otherwise specified by the buyer. On finer instruments, we insist on overnight shipment for safe handling. Buyer pays shipping unless otherwise agreed upon. International shipments are via FedEx.
Must have prior approval of return. Opened strings are not returnable. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your guitar, simply return it fully insured (with prior authorization) via shipping method we agree upon. When we receive the instrument in the same condition as when we shipped it, you will happily be issued a refund minus all shipping costs.
