Oh Yeah Kaz, I got my Damien FR Schecter back(on the cheap, guy needed cash, I got it for 100$)
Floyd Rose Tremolo
EMG Hzs (Dual Humbuckers)
Satin Black Finish
Rosewood fretboard
Batwing inlays on the fretboard.


Also (in a different deal with different person) I traded a Peavey 2x12 75watt Chorus amp (heavy as hell) for a Takamine G540C natural (cutaway acoustic electric). needed strings and had to straighten the neck (whoopie , 2 turns of an allen wrench).

If I can make some time, I will take some pics of each and post em.

Dont know that I have ever seen a truss rod cover like that.
I will have to do some checking.
Man i hate to hear you need to sell.
Les Paul Stds and Customs from the 80s era in good to mint condition sell from 1100$ to 3500$ depending on std or custom, finish, year, colour for that year and so on.
I will check for you and see. U just need the cover?

Yes, vettie...i need this exact cover.
I dont think you'll find an original, the best way is to engrave a blank gibson one.

Reasonable $ ?


I found a real one from a 1984 model that had been destroyed in a warehouse in NAshville during some of the flooding that happened last year or so. The guy had his guitars insured (he was /is a collector) and some 30 different Les Pauls and 15 Strats (all collector models, lowest valued at 5.7k$) were either heavily damaged or destroyed in the flooding.

He wanted 120$ for that piece. Gruhns Shop in Nashville want 85$.

A Blank GIBSON plate (with the Gibson name on it and their little design) was 22$. Engraving to get what YOU needed was 4$ per 5 letters plus a 1 time set up fee of 12$. So 34$ for just a REAL Gibson Plate (with their insignia) and the set up then what another 20$ for the wording? so 54$ roughly.

A completely (aftermarket) blank cover was only about 7$, then the Engraving and setup fee, 20$ + 12$ + 7$ = 39$
