I could refer you to the "box tech" who stole my prototype , but I won't.

I recently sent my original prototype drawings to the Button Box in Mass, USA  with suggestions on improvements.
Perhaps they will set up to make them. 
As much as I would like to make them, unfortunately , I'm too busy.

BTW   mine would fit either the Erica or the Poker work and looked appropriate for either, no matter the vintage.

This looks like plastic, so maybe not what you are looking for.

You should try Martin Quinn.

The Acorn ones are great, and worth the wait.

For those not familiar with them, Pete's fingerboards are not simple replacements. They have a removable back which allows the key travel to easily be limited and adjusted. 
Available in black or unfinished.

Have you tried CGM? I'm pretty sure Charlie had a few of Acorn/Pete's keyboards in stock at one time.
Although they may be long gone.
