Does anybody know a source for 2" yellow gold dobro/resonator soundhole covers?

I ordered some but they turned out to be a rose gold, not yellow gold.

I'm looking for a gold like the 24k or hamilton color in the pic bellow. Thanks.

2 3/8"

Ebay

Hi, I got some from a Reso dealer in New Zealand some years ago, gold coverplate too. I can't remember the dealers name, sorry. Taff

Thanks but the ones I ordered also looked yellow in the pics. Was wondering if anybody had seen some first hand.

Hi, that should have been Tasmania, store name is Molonator.
Taff.

Thanks Taffy, I checked them out but they only have silver at the moment.

CB Gitty has some with gold mesh in the center. Just used a couple.

Thanks Alan but the ones I have a I got from CB Gitty. Probably they get in batches that are slightly different.

I went ahead and used them because none of the gold hardware on the guitar I'm making really matches anyway. It's got 6 shades of gold. Adds to the home-built, cobbled-together look. lol
