Need a 5-sided control/pickup mounting plate that was originally used by Gibson on their prewar Kalamazoo and Mastertone lap steels, found its way to the EH-125 and the final EH-100 and EH-150 models, and eventually ended up on Harmonys, Silvertones, and others after the war.

Here's one on a prewar Kalamazoo KEH:

Alternatively, just a tracing of its outline would suffice, as my intention is to use it as a routing template for a new control plate on an upcoming project.

Finally found it. The one I have is slightly different. The outside edge has two angles on it instead of the flat angle in your photo.
Like this one here:

Thanks, Todd. I have one that's similar, sort of a cross between yours and the one I'm looking for. I believe it came off a Silvertone:

There must be several variations of mounting plates for the P-13 pickup. Here's one from a postwar Harmony:

I have one of them, but mounted it in a body I made.

Guess I could take it out and make one of my pickups to replace it. Talk to me. jerico47@gmail.com
Maybe you could use the whole guitar.

Yup, that's the one, Jerry. That's far too nice a guitar to cannibalize for a mounting plate. Love the red and white combination.
