    Anybody have an idea where I can find a gold pickguard bracket with 15mm spacing between the screw holes. It is for the 1941 Synchromatic 100 I have written about in different threads here. Trying to avoid putting an extra hole in the body. See pic below and a new replacement bracket I bought with hole spacing 0125210933.jpg 0125210934.jpg of only 10mm.

    The last time I needed one, I bought brass bar stock and made my own and had it plated.

    Some pickguard brackets have a single screw in the side mount. If it was me and I decided not to drill a new hole I would mount the bracket you have with one screw and use it that way while I looked for something new or used that would match up better.

    Good luck
