For many years, in the guitar universe, the very common slang term for a WMP pick guard or other WMP trim on a guitar is MOTO. Sometimes it's spelled out as Mother of Seat pick guard, back plate, and fret markers.

No way? What's the comparison to toilets I'm missing?

Pearlescent plastic toilet seats (made of the same stuff as wrap but made from blocks of the stuff instead of sheets) used to be quite popular.

Added to the fact that it yellows mellowly

There were times when people ordered strange things from our Custom Shop. The master builders in the Custom Shop also made bizarre guitars and amps for the annual industry trade show where we'd have a lottery drawing for authorized dealers to take their pick of which one-offs they wanted to buy. I sold one set just like this (might be that one in this picture) to a major Custom Shop dealer in Houston.

The next big trend in bathroom makeovers and design:

Drum Wrap toilet seat covers! Add a touch of class and elegance to your toilet with Black Diamond Pearl! Or, say that your bathroom is "Fun" with some Mardi Gras! And don't forget that Pink Glitter wrap for the girls bathroom! Complete your half bath's contemporary look with some handsome Silver Sparkle that goes with any decor!

Years ago my friend and I came up with the idea of selling tervis-style clear tumblers or coffee mugs with pieces of drum wrap between the layers. Our idea is that they would come with 5 or 6 different wraps that you could interchange to fit your mood. I'll be darned if the idea didn't turn up a few years later. A day late and a dollar short yet again!

It's commonly known as MOTS-Mother Of Seat.
