    I tried doing a search for one and could not locate one either. Maybe contact one of the major places like Stewmac or Allparts and see if they have one. Maybe even a custom cut from a local luthier?(I assume you have you old one as a template)

    Are you talking about brass, anodized aluminum or painted plastic ala Gretsch?

    Well, if you're in to d.i.y then I'd say you could cut your own and anodize it at home. I was given this web site which I think breaks it down pretty simple : http://astro.neutral.org/anodise2.shtml
